Abstract: Let A be a bounded multiplication operator on $ {L_2}(\Omega ,m)$, where $ \Omega $ is a complete separable metric space and m a Borel measure. A set of measure zero can be removed from $ \Omega $ so that the multiplicity function of A is equal to the cardinality of the preimage. In the proof, $ \Omega $ is decomposed into subsets of simple multiplicity.
