Several overall parameters are introduced to characterize the linear or circular polarization content of a non-uniformly totally polarized beam over the region of its wavefront where the irradiance is significant. These parameters are determined from the values of the Stokes parameters. Experimental examples are also given to check both, the physical meaning of the proposed parameters and the validity of the measurement procedure.
