The labor force of a country or other geographical region is the number of people who are able to work, regardless of whether they are currently employed or seeking employment. Individuals who qualify for the labor force are generally those who are old enough to legally begin work and younger than retirement age. Labor force numbers also exclude individuals with disabilities that prevent them from taking part in the workforce. Sometimes the term labor force is also used to refer only to civilian workers, excluding current members of the armed forces. Homemakers and unpaid caregivers may also be excluded from labor force numbers.
