Abstract: We study subsets $ E$ of $ {{\mathbf{R}}^n}$ which are $ {H^s}$ measurable and have $ 0 < {H^s}(E) < \infty $, where $ {H^s}$ is the $ s$-dimensional Hausdorff measure. Given an integer $ k$, $ s \leqslant k \leqslant n$, we consider six ($ s$, $ k$) regularity definitions for $ E$ in terms of $ k$-dimensional subspaces or surfaces of $ {{\mathbf{R}}^n}$. If $ s = k$, they all agree with the ($ {H^k}$, $ k$) rectifiability in the sense of Federer, but in the case $ s < k$ we show that only two of them are equivalent. We also study sets with positive lower density, and projection properties in connection with these regularity definitions.
