Based on data from Ministry of Public Work and Housing in Indonesia, the government has been allocating more than half of the state budget for infrastructure development all over the country. Regarding this matter, this research tries to find out what types of infrastructures that influence the human development index and which are not. This research also try to find out the relationship of those infrastructures development with the human development index. The methodology used in this research is panel data approach with fixed effect model because it can combine time series data and cross section data. The variables used in this research are Human Development Index, electricity, banking credit, gini ratio and economy growth. The data are taken in 2011-2015 in 33 provinces in Indonesia which covers Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Kalimantan and Papua islands and some small islands such Bali, Maluku and Nusa Tenggara. This research has come up with some findings; 1) The infrastructures that influence the human development index are physical (electricity) and non-physical infrastructure (banking credit) whereas the economic growth does not have any influence on the human development index. 2) The relationship of those infrastructure with the human development index are having positive and significant relationship to human development index, which means if there are some raises in electricity development and banking credit, it is expected that there will be also a raise in the human development index.3) Gini ratio has a negative and significant relationship to human development index.
