Evaluation and measurement of the degree of development of societies have always been one of the goals and concerns of local and national programmers in au countries around the world. Development as one of the praised keywords in the literature concerning a social or economic progress has been clarified and analyzed in many cases. Progressive and attractive nature of the development debates has led to planning various method for measuring and grading it in various geographic scales. Now adays, local policy makers and programmers, without a clear picture of the level of development of the units affected by theirs decisions, csnnot locate the priorities or solve the problems. The present study is mainly focused on recognition of deprired areas and planning for reducing the gap between neighboring areas to achieve a balanced development. It also has tired to compare the degree of relative development in different cities in Mazandaran province and rating them in the province by using the classification technique of numerical Taxonomy. The research method is descriptive and analytical and based on statistics data. Hence, the datum concerning 2q different in dices of economic- social development for 16 different cities were gathered and reviewed. Then by using the technique of numerical Taxonomy and with the help of "celxe" and "spss" software, granding the cities based on their degree of development was done. Accordingly, Sari was rated the first and Tonekabon the last among the cities. Therefore, alongside with a movement from the center to the marginal areas of the province, the degree of lake of development increases. There is no doubt that in such conditions, the development policies of Mazandaran province should be re- established.
