Abstract: 

Political authorities are among the most influential segments of a society, and social mobility (up position) is one of the most important sociological issues. Hence, the study of amount and type of political elite mobilization in the hierarchy of power structure in society is indispensable. Therefore, in this article a new scale proposed to measure the mobility of Iranian political elite by using theories and methods of measuring mobility in the time frame of 1979-2010.
To this end, in a multi-stage process, first the elites’ job positions were identified. In the second stage, hierarchical structure of positions was determined based on the criteria included in the Constitution.
Finally, in terms of numerical average of key informants’ comments about the value of each key political position were set in an interval level.
Average results obtained from a standardized questionnaire given to experts. This scale measures the value of the job positions of political authorities in Iran for the first time. The measurement occurred in the interval level.
Research findings related to the scores of the political situation values showed that the value of high political positions has experienced fundamental changes in 1989(amended constitution). The review of the situations value taken by a sample of political leaders (heads of three branches) within the eight periods showed their mobility in comparison with each other. Position value scores (Table 1) provide the likelihood of examining factors affecting the mobility in each arbitrary set of political authorities.
