It was a descriptive-analytical research and the data gathering was conducted in a documentary method according to the data statistics of 2011 for Bushehr province from which 59 indexes in different dimensions were extracted; and the level of development for each sub-district of the county was categorized in quantitative methods, using Fuzzy Topsis and SPSS. In addition to outlining the unbalanced aspect of the development in these rural areas, the study findings indicated a deep regional split in the Dashti county, so that the process of distribution of and access to resources in seven sub-districts of Dashti county indicated that the sub-districts of Khormoj and Kebgan had the highest rates of development and Shanbeh, Choghabour and Central sub-districts were among the most deprived rural areas. The evidence also indicated that the sub-districts of Tesouj with 0.379 and Kaki with 0.359 rates were at the mean level of rural development.
