It is a main task of regional development to realize a coordinated development of regional social economy and the oasis ecosystem. This paper took 14 cities in northwest of China as an example and made a deep analysis on their development status, established a comprehensive evaluation index system of social economy and the oasis ecosystem. Using the entropy weight method, coordination development model and economic and ecological benefits criterion, a quantitative analysis was carried out to study the coordinated development degree of regional social economy and the oasis ecosystem. The results showed that: (1) The overall level of coordinated development degree between economy and ecological systems of the 14 cities is not high, with the average degree of coordinated development of 0.46. (2) Overall level of social economic and ecological environment benefit is low with average economic benefit of 0.21 and average ecological benefit of 0.30. (3) There are four cities which belong to the economy and environment synchronous development type, two belong to economic oriented type and the others are environment oriented type.
