Abstract: Since the reform and opening up, Sichuan's economy has maintained stable and rapid development, and its economic strength has increased significantly. However, due to various reasons such as geographical location, history, investment, and government policies, there have been serious imbalances in economic development. In this paper, some economic data of 21 cities and prefectures in Sichuan Province are selected as variables to establish a comprehensive indicator system, and SPSS software is used for cluster analysis and factor analysis. By ranking the economic development levels of the cities and prefectures in Sichuan Province, it is further found that there are significant economic differences among various regions in Sichuan Province. Practical suggestions are put forward to promote the coordinated development of regional economy in Sichuan Province.
