Abstract: 

One of the most serious challenges of rural settlements in developing countries is the socio-economic sustainability. In spite of its systemic relation with environmental sustainability, this issue, considerably is over-shadowed and rarely conceptualized and investigated. These two dimensions that notably are underlying factors of the country’s rural settlements instability, emphasizes on the concept of intergeneration justice. This research based on 29 socio-economic sustainability indices investigates50 villages of north and south Khave rural districts in Delfan County. Required data obtained through filling questionnaire referring to local informants. For ranking villages based on their sustainability, TOPSIS technique and Moris coefficient in a comparative way employed. The results indicate that with TOPSIS technique 92 percent and with Moris coefficient, 96 percent of surveyed villages are in the semi-sustainable condition. There is significant difference between the two methods at 99 percent of confidence level. There is no correlation between population and sustainability level in TOPSIS method. However, there is positive and significant correlation between the same variables.
