This study, investigated impact of gender on residents’ urban renewal knowledge and attitude in Ibadan metropolis. The survey research design was adopted. Four communities; Gege and Opopo Yeosa (noted for poor environmental sanitation), in Ibadan South-east and North-west respectively; Oluyole and Bodija estates (noted for good environmental sanitation), in Ibadan South-West and Ibadan North, respectively were purposively sampled. The instruments used were Urban Renewal Knowledge Test (r = 0.86) and Urban Renewal Attitude Scale (r = 0.76). Two research questions were answered. Data were analysed using inferential statistics of Bonferroni Pairwise Comparison of male and female knowledge of and attitude to urban renewal activities. The results showed that gender had a significant impact on residents’ knowledge as male residents had a higher post-test mean knowledge score (9.21) than their female (6.23) counterparts. Gender also had a significant impact on attitude. Male residents had a higher post-test mean attitude score (26.92) than their female (21.51) counterparts. Based on the findings it is recommended that the sanitation campaigns mounted by the government should take cognisance of residents’ gender for improved knowledge and attitude to moral renewal activities.
