The present article attempts to study one of the key factors of national security threat i.e. urban disparity. The present Iranian condition that is passing through its historical stages cause the irregular growth of urban population and increase of inequalities in its various zones and thus, have create a particular model for urban political geography. This study is an attempt to assess those disproportionate phases through the help of employment and dwellings indicators of 22 zonal units of Tehran. The result of the current research shows that there is considerable variation in 22 zones of Tehran with reference to the job opportunities. As a matter of fact, major concentration of ordinary work force is in the southern parts in comparison to northern half of the city. Thus, with reference to the scattered poverty, the studies were conducted by using the sample of four and more people living in one-room highlights that poor concentrated zones are also not scattered on equal footing. As such, southern zones form the concentrated domain of the poor. With due attention to the indicators of the proposed study, one of the important sources of social and national security threat in Tehran is inequality in dispersion of initial employment and poverty and their concentration in the southern city. With attention to the above points, it must be acknowledged that inequality and urban deprivation are counted as the direct threat to social security.
