Abstract

This paper uses the fuzzy set theory recently suggested by Cerioli and Zani (1990) and Dagum and Costa (2004) to derive a methodology to construct a Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) measurement index. Using the formulation of the index, it also derives the contribution of different attributes to the level of the progress being accomplished in achieving the MDGs. An empirical illustration, based on Cameroonian 2010 MDGs report, shows the usefulness of the procedure proposed in this paper.
