One of the responsibilities of sociological studies is understanding and finding out the structure of social stratification in city’s spaces. This paper tries to provide a sociological description and analysis, and map the social stratification in Tehran’s neighborhoods. The methods of data collection is quantitative. The sample of households was 12,000, and the sample of neighborhoods was 105. Two social stratification indicators (economic power and social statues) and two clustering indicators (local belonging and using neighborhood’s service) were analyzed. According to the findings, distribution of social stratification is almost clear for residents of Tehran based on the uptown and downtown; although there are exceptions. Results show three indicators: economic power, social status, and local belonging as the signs for wealth, dignity, and satisfaction with the place of residence are significant and strongly correlated with together. The aggregation of these three indicators in the neighborhoods of regions 1, 2, and 3 is high, and in the neighborhoods of regions 15, 16, 17, and 18 is very low. This represents a clear bipolarity in Tehran. It can be the source of important social problems in the city, and should be thought out to mitigate its consequences.
