Abstract: The availability of data for the size of economic level of any country is an important feature for economic policies. It helps World Bank to classify the countries as their economic level e.g. medium or high income countries, and it is really a tough job to decide the same. Sometimes traditional approach is not providing the proper level, therefore we use the concept of fuzzy logic to find out the economic level of any country. The fuzzy logic is an ideal tool to cope with vague, ill-structured and uncertain scenarios, which can be found in both fields business and economics. This is the main reason why fuzzy logic is used in this research. Five input variables are used i.e. Population, GDP, Unemployment Rate, Inflation Rate, Industrial Production Growth Rate. The resulting economic level is compared with previously used benchmarking method.
