In the development topics and on the basis of the human development approach, the main goal of development is to improve the quality of human life. Accordingly, the Human Development Index (HDI) has been introduced by the UNDP as a benchmark for assessing quality of life and comparing it in different countries. In the view of the mentioned institution, poor human development leads to poor economic growth. In this paper, firstly, the human development index (without oil) for Iranian provinces in 2005, 2010 and 2015 was calculated based on the UN methodology. Then, the effect of this index on economic growth was studied using provincial data and fuzzy logic method. According to the results, the highest and lowest human development index of the provinces for the years 2005, 2010 and 2015 was 0.733, 0.751 and 0.776 respectively for the province of Tehran, and 0.595, 0.539 and 0.631 for the province Sistan and Baluchestan. After Sistan and Baluchestan, the provinces of Kurdistan, North Khorasan, Kohgiluyvyoubvir-Ahmad and Lorestan have the lowest human development in the provinces. The data show that the average human development of the provinces in the country between 2005 and 2010 was 3%, while the growth was 2010 to 2015, 5% dropped. Other results of the research also show the positive impact of the human development index on the economic growth of the country's provinces.
