Abstract

The computation of employment and unemployment rates is conditioned by the rigid classification of labour force into the mutually exclusive groups of people in employment and people not in employment. This implies a relevant loss of statistical information and wipes out all the nuances that exist between fully employed people and those ones who work only occasionally, while needing to work more. In our view employment should not be considered as a simple attribute that is present or absent but rather as a matter of degree. The aim of this paper is to define and compute fuzzy measures of employment by considering both the number of hours actually worked and wished.
