Abstract: We propose and analyse a mathematical measure for the amount of squeezing contained in a continuous variable quantum state. We show that the proposed measure operationally quantifies the minimal amount of squeezing needed to prepare a given quantum state and that it can be regarded as a squeezing analogue of the
