The aim of this study was to explain the relationship between state efficiency and social trust in the citizens of Rasht. The question is, to what extent does the level of state performance affect the level of social trust? The study of this issue has been done in the form of a quantitative research and the research data have been collected by a questionnaire with a sample size of 384 people and by random cluster sampling method. The statistical population is the citizens of the five districts of Rasht. According to the research findings, the social trust of Rasht citizens is at a moderate level. The citizens of Rasht evaluate the efficiency of the state at a medium and low level. There is a significant correlation between state efficiency and social trust and state efficiency has direct and indirect effects on social trust. Distributive justice accounts for about 57% and political performance for about 22% of changes in social trust. Therefore, the main hypothesis of the research is confirmed. The first sub-hypothesis about the significance of the difference in social trust between urban areas was rejected and the second sub-hypothesis about the significant difference in state efficiency in urban areas was confirmed.
