I'm looking for a word, other than infrastructure or services, to categorise things like hospitals and schools etc. Tried a thesaurus on the word infrastructure but its not helping. I want to use it in sentence like this "....this is how far Japan's _____ has come " or "the quality of a country's _____ can be measured by...."

Any ideas?

Tertiary only means "service" sector and segments the market between firms selling physical / tangible products and ones who sell intangible products i.e. services.

Tangible meaning "able to touch", so you can touch a physical product but not a service.

Other sectors include Primary and Secondary. WOW Business 101 all over again!

**** holes.
