ANALYSIS OF SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF RURAL INFRASTRUCTURAL FACILITIES IN MAKARFI LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF KADUNA STATE, NIGERIA

 

 

ABSTRACT
The provision of infrastructural facilities is inevitable for socio-economic development of any rural area and the deficit of these essential facilities can create socio-economic regional imbalance for rural development. The aim of this study is to analyze the spatial distribution of rural infrastructural facilities in Makarfi local government area of
Kaduna State, Nigeria. The study area population was about one hundred and forty six thousand two hundred and fifty nine (146,259). But Makarfi headquarter is not included as an urban area and the population of the nine wards is 86,430 (NPC, 2006). This figure was projected to 108,417 in 2014 using 3.18% growth rate retrieved from the
National Population Commission (NPC), Kaduna State Official Website, 2014. Sample size of 399 respondents was derived from this, and a multi-stage sampling technique was adopted for the study. Descriptive statistics was employed to summarize the data into percentages, frequency counts and averages. Also, Standardized score (z-score)
technique was used to measure variation in the distribution of rural infrastructural facilities. The findings using z-score technique showed spatial unevenness in the distribution of rural infrastructural facilities in the study area. Gubuchi, Nasara Doya and Gazara are more favoured in the provision of rural infrastructural facilities. Dan
Damisa and Gimi have fair amount of the distribution of these rural infrastructure while, Meyare, Makarfi Tudun-wada, Gwanki and Ruma are inadequately provided for. Based on the findings, the study recommends adequate distribution of rural infrastructural facilities in order to bring about equitable development among the regions that make up the country. Also, government should encourage community participation in decision making on the critical infrastructure needed in their domain.
