The electrical conductivity of p-type yttrium sesquioxide has been measured as a function of temperature and of oxygen partial pressure at temperatures from 650 to 1050$^{\circ}C$C and oxygen partial pressures from $1 {\times}10^{-5}\;to\;2{\times}10^{-1}$atm. Plots of log conductivity vs. 1/T at constant oxygen partial pressures are found to be linear with low-and high-temperature dependences of conductivity. The high-temperature dependence of conductivity shows two different defect structures. The plots of log conductivity vs. log $Po_2$ are found to be linear at $Po_2$'s of $10^{-5}\;to\;10^{-1}$ atm. The electrical conductivity dependences on $Po_2$ are found to be ${{\sigma}{\propto}Po_2}^{1/6}$at $850{\sim}950^{\circ}C,\;{{\sigma}{\propto}Po_2}^{3/16}$ at $950{\sim}1050^{\circ}C\;and\;{{\sigma}{\propto}Po_2}^{1/7.5}{\sim}{{\sigma}{\propto}Po_2}^{1/8.3}\;at\;650{\sim}800^{\circ}C$, respectively. The defect structures are$O_i{''}$ at $850{\sim}950^{\circ}C$ and $V_M{'''}$ at $950{\sim}1050^{\circ}C$. The electron hole is main carrier type, however, ionic contribution is found at lower temperature portion.
