To analysis environmental livability, four indices of pollution (environmental quality), green space, rural landscape and resilience (19 items) were examined. One-sample T-test analyses were used to prove the significance and generalizability of the research results, regression analysis was used to determine the impact of environmental indices on the livability of rural settlements and path analysis was used to determine the impact of indicators on livability. Using a single sample t-test, it was found that the average environmental dimension is lower than the expected one. The results of regression analysis indicate the high explanation power of the environmental dimension in relation to the changes in the livability of rural settlements in the County of Somehsara. The results of path analysis showed that the amount of direct and indirect effects of the four indices of environmental dimension on livability was equal to 1.628.
