Abstract: This study analysed infrastructure provision with a view to assess levels of concentration and access to available infrastructure in Doma LGA of Nasarawa State. To achieve the aim of this study, 22 settlements were selected for the study on the basis of population threshold and a total of 14 basic infrastructural facilities were investigated in each of the settlements using the village/community heads as respondents. Physical observation was utilised as a tool for data collection while location quotient technique was applied to measure the levels of concentration and access to existing infrastructure in the study area. The result showed that the public (62.1%) and private (37.9%) sectors were involved in the provision of infrastructure in Doma LGA. In terms of Quantity of infrastructure provided Doma town (41%) and Agbashi (4.8%) played the leading role in the concentration of infrastructure. The result of the location quotient revealed levels of disparity in access to existing infrastructure in Doma LGA, making Doma Town (1.6) less accessible than Agbashi (2.5). The study identified three (3) categories of settlements in line with the level of access to infrastructure. On the basis of the findings, it is recommended that population threshold should be used as yardstick in the provision of basic infrastructure and Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation (PM&E) should be put in place to ensure sustainability of infrastructure provided in the study area.
