A synthetic measure (or synthetic indicator) is a value that is the result of combining other metrics, which are measurements of various features.


Quality of service[edit]

There is a method to measure quality of service in hotels. In related study [1] authors aggregate tourist opinions, measured on a scale from 1 to 10. Synthetic measure (indicator) of service quality in each hotel is calculated with the help of the aggregation operator.

Project performance[edit]

Other study[2] proposed to use classical parameters EV, PV and AC to carry out the synthetic measure of project performance.

Rankings of countries[edit]

Different normalized stimulants and destimulants were used in research[3] to create synthetic measure that selects countries with the best and the worst levels of implementation of Europe 2020 targets.

Information quality[edit]

There are scientific works [4][5] that describe method of quality assessment of Wikipedia articles using synthetic measure. The quality can be measured on a scale between 0 and 100 based on the following formula:


  • is a normalized metric
  • is the number of metrics

The results of the calculations are available on WikiRank[6] service.
