Descriptive results were presented as frequency tables, percentages, arithmetic means and standard deviation. Inferential statistics were analysed using Pearson’s Product Moment correlation (r) from simple regression and multiple regression analysis. F-test was used to test the hypotheses. Tests of statistical assumptions were carried out before analysis. In this study; r=0.332, R2=0.110, F 4.095 at p=0.004<0.05; therefore, H0 was rejected and it was concluded that application of stakeholder analysis has a statistically significant influence on the performance of community-based projects.
