This paper proposes a new contribution to manage uncertainty in the context of a situation recognition. It gives an application to the measurement of housing use situations. It extends a previous communication that proposes an ontological based model of situations. In this model, a situation is a set of entities linked by relationships themselves determined using sensors. However, such model doesn't allow to manage uncertainty. In order to take into account an uncertainty related to the

This anonymous instance is linked with a "same as" relationships with all possible eligible entities. In addition, we propose to complete this model by the association of a mass with each "same as" relationship. This paper presents a probabilistic semantic to these masses. A simple didactic example on a housing use situations measurement illustrates the presented approach.
