The definitions of village membership used by ordinary people imply village populations that are variable and fuzzy. The definitions used by administrators, including leaders of village organizations, imply populations that are fixed and crisp. Social scientists have traditionally failed to distinguish between these two types of population and forms of categorization, leading to mismeasurement and false findings.

Keywords:   crisp and fuzzy sets, measurement, population, Thailand, transactions costs, village organization
