Bidimensional dual hesitant fuzzy (BDHF) set is developed to present preferences of a decision maker or an expert, which is more objective than existing fuzzy sets such as Atanassov's intuitionistic fuzzy set, hesitant fuzzy set, and dual hesitant fuzzy set. Then, after investigating some distance measures, we define a new generalized distance measure between two BDHF elements with parameterλfor the sake of overcoming some drawbacks in existing distance measures. Covering all possible values of

In order to address complex multiple attribute decision analysis (MADA) problems, an extension of fuzzy VIKOR method in BDHF context is proposed in this paper. In VIKOR method for MADA problems, weight of each attribute indicates its relative importance. To obtain weights of attributes objectively, a new entropy measure with BDHF information is developed to create weight of each attribute. Finally, an evaluation problem of performance of people's livelihood project in several regions is analyzed by the proposed VIKOR method to demonstrate its applicability and validity.
