Functional Disintegration of Institutions(FDI) is studied in evolutionism and Functionalism- especially in transition period's discussions- and sociology. The purpose of this article is presenting a suitable indicator in macro experimental studies in sociology for measuring the Disintegration of Iranian society's institutions and its validity. Systemic integration and balance in functionalist theories has conceptual ambiguities, so measuring and building index will have some problems. Therefore at the first of this article concept of integration in Parsons Sociology is criticized on the basis of social entropy theory and finally legal discrepancies as a suitable indicator is proposed.
