In this paper, the problem of measuring the degree of inclusion and equivalence measure for Atanassov intuitionistic fuzzy setting is considered. We propose inclusion and equivalence measure by using the partial or linear order on Atanassov intuitionistic fuzzy setting. Moreover, some properties of inclusion and equivalence measures and some correlation between them and aggregation operators are examined.
