The required data were collected through a questionnaire, the content and face validity of which was confirmed by faculty members at university and several experts of administrative offices; and to determine its reliability, a pilot test was conducted and the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of 0.79 was achieved. The achieved data were analyzed by Fuzzy TOPSIS techniques. The results of multi-attribute decision making methods on the basis of calculated weights showed that Lahroud and Shaban sub-districts were in the first and second ranks in terms of economic sustainability, respectively, and Northern Arshagh sub-district was in the last rank.
