Abstract:

This study explores the crucial role of social infrastructure in creating and nurturing healthy communities, serving as the backbone for societal prosperity and habitability. Inadequate delivery and maintenance of quality social infrastructure at the neighborhood level present a serious challenge in Abuja. The research focuses on the impact of social infrastructure on resident’s wellbeing in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). It examines the distribution pattern and physical conditions of existing social infrastructure while investigating their effects on residents’ wellbeing. The study employs a quantitative approach, utilizing structured questionnaires to collect data from 425 households, sampled through systematic random sampling with a multi-stage sampling approach in five selected districts: Wuse, Maitama, Asokoro, Garki, and Guzape. Descriptive statistics, spearman rank correlation, and geospatial techniques, including nearest neighbor analysis, are used to analyze the data. The results indicate that social infrastructures in the study areas are adequately dispersed (z-score = 7.5, p < 0.01). Spearman rank correlation demonstrates a statistically significant relationship between social infrastructure and residents’ wellbeing (rho = 0.95, p < 0.01), leading to the rejection of the null hypothesis (H0) and acceptance of the alternative hypothesis (H1). Consequently, the research concludes that social infrastructure significantly impacts residents’ wellbeing. It advocates for government collaboration with private developers and communities to harness resources and provide well-maintained social infrastructure, thereby improving the wellbeing of residents in the FCT.
