THE IMPACT OF SALARY INCREASE ON INFLATION IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACT

No economy can escape the evils done is by inflation and unemployment because when measures to control one are being employed the other is being upset. However, we are dealing with inflation alone. In fact, this study investigates the impact of salary increase on inflation in Nigeria. In a bid to achieve the objective of the study, ordinary least square regression method was adopted using secondary data from 1984 to 2009 the results indicate that there is a negative relationship between the dependent variable (inflation) and the independent variable (salary). The result of study showed that salary increase has a negative relationship with inflation and salary does not have a significant impact on inflation in Nigeria, therefore inflation is not adequately explained by changes in salary. Hence, inflation should be track led adopting other fiscal and monetary measures and not necessarily income policies
