Sustainable Livelihoods is one of the new analytical approaches to rural development that has been considered in recent years for rural development and poverty alleviation. The purpose of this study is to analyze the stability of rural livelihood in Saqez city. In order to determine the villages studied, villages were first divided into 5 groups of population and then, based on the number of villages in each population class, the number of villages in each class was determined. In total, 30 villages were selected as samples. Using the Cochran formula, 300 families were selected as the sample size and completed the questionnaire. The results of descriptive findings and one-sample T-test show that the sustainability of livelihood in all aspects of sustainable livelihoods is low in the study area. Also, the results of correlation and regression analysis show that there is a direct and meaningful relationship between the components of sustainable livelihoods, and among these components, economic and physical assets have an impact on the sustainable livelihoods of the residents. Also, the results of ANOVA and Tukey's test show that there is a significant difference between the departments of Saqez City in terms of sustainability of livelihood and the central section in terms of livelihoods sustainability has a more favorable situation to other sectors.
