Abstract: In this paper we build a model for measuring the quality of life of households in the metropolitan area of Mérida (Venezuela) by means of fuzzy logic and by considering a broad set of indicators used in the theoretical studies of quality of life. The methodology used is fuzzy subsets, a technique that allows us to measure and evaluate all aspects that explain life quality from an integrative dimension.
