In this paper, we refine the definition of weighted hesitant fuzzy set (WHFS), the concept that allows the membership of a given element is defined in terms of several possible values together with their importance weight, and then introduce some correlation measures for WHFSs. To illustrate the application of proposed correlation measures for WHFSs, we give a practical example in medical diagnosis.
