The research work critically examined the extent to which naira exchange rate depreciation had affected domestic inflationary rate in Nigeria between 1985 â€“ 2000.
Therefore, in this study, the researcher examined the trend of inflation and exchange and the relationship between the two variables. A model was specified to show the relationship between both variables. Also interest rate was included in the model as one of the variables that affect inflation.
The model was then estimated using multiple regression method and variable statistical tests where carried out on the regression equation.
The result was analyzed accordingly. Moreover, the result of the statistical test shows that exchange rate depreciation of Naira is significant in explaining variation in the rate of inflation.
Finally, the data for the project work was collected from most recent years in order to make finding, adequate in explaining the cause of inflation in recent times.
