The data relating to 54 indicators of smart urban growth in the scale of these regions and in the framework of 4 criteria physical - land use, socioeconomic, access - transportation, and environment using a combination Shapiro-Wilks and Kolmogorov-Smirnov and single-sample t; Index of dispersion and Vicor method were also analyzed.
Findings: Ahvaz has not had smart and there are differences between regions as well as indicators in this metropolis. In relation to the appropriateness of Ahwaz metropolitan areas with the indicators of smart urban growth, in the physical index, the first 7th region and the last 8th region; In the socio-economic index, zone 2 first and zone 6 last; In the access-transportation index, the first zone 4 and the last zone 6; In the environmental index, zone 4 is the first and zone 6 is the last, and in the integrated index, zone 4 is the first and zone 6 is the last. the situation of environmental criteria is more inappropriate than other criteria. However, other criteria are not in a good position.
