Present research paper envisages investigation of the incidence and prevalence of Broncho-Pulmonary Dysplasia among infants in UMTH and UDUS Hospitals in Maidguri, Nigeria. The data used in this research paper were obtained from the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH), Maiduguri and Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital Sokoto with sample size of Seventy (70) patients in 2014; Fifty (50) patients from Maiduguri and Twenty (20) from Sokoto respectively. Discriminant analysis model was employed for the analysis with the help of SPSS. The result of the analysis indicates that discriminant model has a perfect classification of new cases in Maiduguri while it has misclassified one of five new cases in Sokoto. This result suggests that the prediction of Broncho–Pulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) is better done with discriminant model in Maiduguri. The study recommends that Doctors and Clinics should adopt the use of the models built by this research to detect the prevalence of BPD among infants.
