This study examined the demographic indicators of creativity among undergraduates of universities in Kwara state, Nigeria. The study specifically determined the creativity level of the respondents and how they have differed on the bases of demographic factors. Using the descriptive survey design, proportionate sampling technique was used to select the respondents from the two Universities. A self-designed creativity scale was used to collect data and the data were analyzed with descriptive statistics and a 2-way and 3-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The results of the study showed that Undergraduates of Universities in Kwara State have an average level of creativity and the respondents were similar in their level of creativity based demographic variables (gender, residence, level of study and course of study); while they have differed on the basis of parents’ educational attainment. It was recommended among others that stakeholders in the Nigerian education system should equip universities resources that can nurture innate potentials of students (irrespective of the demographic factors) to enable them to become highly creative individuals.
