Reduced inequality in utilization of community resources and facilities is one of the essential standards of sustainable development. In this regard، regional and local inequalities are of special importance. This paper emphasizes district differences in Meybod city level in addition to specifying the position of Meybod city among our country. It was done using a descriptive-analytic method. Statistical models such as Wilkaksun test were also applied to compare sustainability between Meybod city indices with our country and in the second stage، it was analyzed and evaluated by functional analysis technique، HDI، standardized score technique and dispersion coefficient (C.V) using 23 economical-social indices. Studies carried out show that the position of Meybod city is desirable among other cities. However، results from functional analysis show that only on sixth of localities have desirable situation and the gap between the most sustainable and the least stable district is 1.4 in HDI index. Even in analyzing a series of sustainability factors، the sustainable difference is 0.87%، representing dispersal and high gap within regions in having sustainability indices. In total، spatial dispersion of localities in sustainability is such that، districts with strong and ideal sustainability are located in the south and western south and the unsustainable districts are in central and eastern parts. Sustainable districts in accessibility to services and facilities are in better condition and the unsustainable districts in center due to compact texture and the difficulty of surface expansion and some parts in the edge became unstable because of adjoining to the city and horizontal expansion. Therefore، accessibility to sustainable development in the localities is possible with applying strategies consistent with strengths and enhancement of weak index.
