In the meantime, among different dimensions of rural structure, physical dimension, due to the establishment and stimulation of the optimal performance of other aspects of rural structure, is more important. The assessment of the situation and its resilience against natural and human disaster and hazards is undeniable.
  • This applied research was carried out to measure the level of physical resilience of rural areas in the central part of Marivan city. In this descriptive-analytic study, data were collected from library resources in the theoretical part. In the field, a distribution questionnaire has been used among 50 dehyaran by using random sampling.
  • Data analysis with using indicators such as single-sample t-test, Friedman rank, one-way ANOVA and Scheffe’s test showed that the level of physical resilience of the studied villages was not at the level satisfaction in the eight examined indicators. Among the indicators of physical resilience, the building design index is the most desirable and the index of the status of public places and services is the most unfavorable situation
