In this paper, we show that an unbounded $S_0$-demicompact linear operator T with respect to a bounded linear operator $S_0$, acting on a Banach space, can be characterized by the Kuratowskii measure of noncompactness. Moreover, some other quantities related to this measure provide sufficient conditions to the operator T to be $S_0$-demicompact. The obtained results are used to discuss the connection with Fredholm and upper Semi-Fredholm operators.
