Small cities, with the acceptance of some of the capital and production factors, can be a factor in attracting the population and ultimately helping to balance in their regions to reduce the urban dilemmas rooted in the countryside. In order to achieve a balanced and equitable distribution of population, capital, facilities, facilities as well as economic activities at the national and regional levels of small cities, especially cities where their position in the settlements network acts as an intermediary between urban and rural centers, small cities have been the focus of attention. In fact, the purpose of the research is to investigate the role of small towns in regional development. The approach used in this research is descriptive-analytical. Librarian methods and literature reviews and statistics and detailed census results have been used to collect the required statistics and data. The SPSS and Excel software have been used to analyze any probable changes in the population of cities, urban and rural areas. Since population changes over the years, developments in the urban network and its hierarchical system have been investigated during the three census periods. In this study, related methods and models such as rank size, pull coefficient, Georgeshaho and bourgeois model, centrality index, urban primary index were used. The results of the study showed that Dehgolan has a basic economy in agricultural and industrial sectors with 1. 67 and 1. 17 respectively, and in non-economic services sector. This issue regarding the role of central city of Dehgolan in the city indicates the weaknesses of this sector in the economy of the city of Dehgolan. Based on the interpretation of the coefficient of location model, it was determined that the city of Dehgolan is not in good condition in providing this service and other facilities.
