Abstract: 

In the literature of information society, there is a direct relationship between the use and production of knowledge and development; however, this type of development is not a balanced development based on the international reports. In the study of every type of development, we need to measure the indicators and factors. In this study, after reviewing of the information community indexes, they were localized and allocated to the clustering of the information level in Khorasan Razavi Province. The main questions in this study are: I) "How the ranking of development is based on the information society's indicators?" and 2) "Is there any relationship between the given clustering and the development's ranking in Khorasan Razavi? The results of cluster analysis showed that Mashhad area alone is in the first cluster, and the rest areas are in the second cluster. So, if we remove the city of Mashhad from the analysis, we can group the rest areas into three clusters. On the other hand, clustering showed a proximate relationship with other indicators of development such as the level of social development, human development and infrastructure development. On the basis of total findings, we can conclude that Mashhad city, as the political center and the main pole of the province's development, has concentrated the majority of infrastructures and information society's indicators. Since the future comprehensive development of regions and cities are based on the information society, the authorities should double attention to the balanced development of this province.
