The analysed data was summarized quantitatively and qualitatively where both descriptive and inferential statistics wwere generated and linked to hypotheses and objectives. 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.
