This paper continues the study of the connection between hyper- groups and fuzzy sets, investigating the length of the sequence of join spaces associated with a hypergroup. The classes of complete hypergroups and of 1-hypergroups are considered and analyzed in this context. Finally, we give a method to construct a nite hypergroup with the strong fuzzy grade equal to a given natural number
