Abstract: Socio-economic development and, generally, all aspects of development in a country, is the main and structural component of achieving development goals in very country. Based on its human and territory structure, Iran is recognized as a highly civilized country with a rich government history. Respecting the current status of most countries based on which being developed is considered as a success factor, Iran also tries to follow this path. But, what is governing the political, economic and social sphere is different and challenging. Because of various international sanctions during recent years Iran has faced undesirable socio-economic status associated with a great deal of different challenges influencing employment, inflation and depression, immigration, and marriage. The present paper employs descriptive – analytical methodology to explore economic challenges in Iran leading to more severe situations under sanctions. Findings indicate that an increase in unemployment rate, human capital flight, globalization and challenge with global economy are among the most important effective factors on Iran's socioeconomic status. Results show that Iran has suppressed economic growth, high rates of unemployment and unfavourable demographic components now.
