In this article, first, the income level of households was estimated by the proxy means test method, and then the ratio of households in the first two deciles was estimated based on the income level in each of the Iranchr ('39')s provinces. The results showed that in 2019, Sistan and Baluchestan province is at the top of the provinces with the highest proportion of low-income households with 57.2 percent. In contrast, this ratio in Tehran province is 3.8 percent.
