Human Development Index consisted of three indices: life expectancy, education and per capita income. This index shows the improvement of countries in three dimensions: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and have a decent standard of living.  In addition, human capital shows the knowledge embedded in humans for economic growth and development of nations and in some way the same human development index. The aim of this study was ranking of Iran provinces based on two mentioned indices and comparing the two with each other. The research method was mathematical and quantitative. The numerical taxonomy was used to calculate the human development index, and the income-based method was used to calculate human capital. The finding showed that the provinces of the country differ in each of the of human development provinces. Therefore, the rank of provinces in the combined human development index is due to a criterion that has more weight in that province. There was no significant relation between human capital and human development indices. Although, almost in half of the provinces the human development index and human capital rank were closed, there were also significant differences in many of them.
Keywords: Human development, Human capital, Ranking, Province.
