The phenomenon of worn out in urban textures affects its structure and the social and economic activities. Therefore, the present study seeks to investigate the effect of urban texture inefficiency on the incidence of social harms in Maragheh. The present research is descriptive-analytical and the information has been collected in the form of documents and field study. The research sample is 400 citizens of Maragheh who have been selected in a non-probability sampling approach. In this study, entropy, Vickor, T-test, Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression tests were used to analyze the data. The results of the Vikor index showed that areas number 5 and 6 were designated as fully efficient; areas number 7 and 4 as relatively efficient areas, whereas areas number 3 and 2 as completely inefficient areas. Also, the assessment of the situation of social harms in the city of Maragheh showed that District 1 has the highest rate of social harms in this city. After that, areas 3, 2, 4, 7, 6 and 5, respectively, have witnessed the highest incidence of social harms. Finally, the results of Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression tests showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between the inefficiency of urban texture and the occurrence of social harms in cities.
