This paper tries to evaluate the relationship between steel industry with the quality of life of the residents of Yalghouz Aghaj rural district in Hgorveh town in Kordestan province. The approach used for assessing the quality of life is a social quality approach. The social quality approach with four indicators of social economic, social cohesion, sense of well being and welfare and environmental sustainability explore the quality of life. In doing this research a combination of quantitative (survey) and qualitative methods (group discussions and depth interview) has been used according to the procedures and objectives of the research. Statistical analysis of data from this study shows, when quality of life is measured with three indicators (i.e., socio–economic availability, social cohesion and sense of well being and welfare), it has no significant relationship with industry. On the other hand, when the quality of life is measured with only two indicators of having socio–economic availability and sense of well being and welfare, the relationship between industry and quality of life is approved in the 99 percent confidence level. Moreover, statistical analysis of data shows that there is a relationship between industrialization of the region with socio–economic availability at the 99 level of significance and with sense of well being and welfare at the 95 level of significance. In this study the relationship between industry with social cohesion was not confirmed. For evaluating the relationship between industry and environmental sustainability we used both group discussion and depth interview. The results of the study shows that industrialization of the region has had different and negative effects on noise pollution, water pollution, soil pollution and weather pollution.
