A large single crystal of stoichiometric YbP was grown by the mineralization method. We report the electrical resistivity, magnetoresistance, and Hall-effect measurements of this sample. These data are used to calculate the temperature dependences of the mobilities of electrons and holes as well as the carrier concentrations based on the simple two-band model. The results clearly indicate that transport properties in YbP are mainly determined by the conduction-band electrons, though an equal number of valence-band holes is present. The resistivity does not show the (Formula presented) behavior characteristic of Kondo compounds.
