Abstract: The study examined the determinants of child labour participation among cassava processing rural households in Ogun state, Nigeria. Data were obtained using a three-state sampling procedure. The study used Logit model to analyse determinants of child labour among cassava processing households. The variables age of household head, household size, gross income from cassava processing, primary occupation of household head and poverty status of the household were found to significantly explain child labour participation among the cassava processing households. It is recommended that a policy designed to ameliorate the poverty of these rural poor must among other things recognize provision of sound education at affordable fees, encourage birth control measures would check child labour participation among cassava processing households in the study area.
