The study has measured the levels of social facilities provision in the rural areas of the Jos Plateau Region of Nigeria. Over 60 dependent and independent variables were employed in determining the rural development index (RUDEVI). Social sectors covered include health care, educational, water supply, rural roads, places of worship and other general welfare infrastructure and services. The various levels of rural development indices of the 86 communities studied were subjected to analysis of variances (ANOVA), correlation and regression using population size as the focal variable. It was found that population is not a major factor used in the sitting of social facilities in the rural areas of Jos Plateau, which is not supposed to be the case.
