Increase of employment and reduction of unemployment are the most important indicators for community development. Statistical indicators derived from the implementation of the Labor Force Survey design are useful in evaluating employment policies and performances. But, it should also emphasize that using an indicator (such as the unemployment rate) alone cannot be a suitable criterion for assessing the employment performance of the provinces, so it is necessary to use a set of major indicators of labor force design; in order to achieve a complete view of executive performance of employment, realization of development plans and so on.
 In this study, the provinces of Iran are ranked based on Major Labor Force indicators during 2015 to 2019 by using TOPSIS method. The weight of these indicators is determined using the CRITIC method. Then the ranking results are compared with the ranking of provinces only based on the unemployment rate. The results show that North Khorasan, Fars and Mazandaran provinces have the desired performance during this period.
Keywords: Ranking of provinces, unemployment rate, labor force survey design, TOPSIS method and CRITIC weighting method.
