The labor force or workforce of a country comprises the number of people of working age who are either employed or seeking employment. Typically, this would include everyone of working age (defined in most countries as above 15 or 16 years and below 60-65 years of age) who is able and willing to work. People excluded are those falling outside the working-age group (such as students and retired persons), as well as people of working age who, either voluntarily or due to other constraints, are not seeking employment in the period under consideration (such as stay-at-home parents and people in prisons or similar institutions).
