Labour Force Participation

[ˈleɪbə | fɔrs | pɑrˌtɪsəˈpeɪʃ(ə)n]

A labour force participation is the measurement which identifies the number of people currently employed and actively looking for work, divided by the total number of working age people within a national population. 

This is carefully monitored by policy-makers because of the significant effect it can have on the national economy, (such as inflation, housing prices, cost of living). This measurement helps organizations to be aware of how many jobs could be offered.
