The value of the empirical content of a proposition denotes the amount of empirical content contained in the proposition. The paper presents a calculus system through which the  value of empirical content of a compound proposition is computed given values of the empirical content of basic propositions and their conditional propositions. By specifying a  minimal unit value for empirical content of basic proposition and a special value for empirical content of universal affirmative proposition, the paper explores the values of the  empirical content of categorical propositions. The system is not probability-based. The calculus system as well as specifications provides a new perspective on the comparison of scientific theories.
