MARKET SHARE: The fraction of an industry's total sales accounted for by a single business. In general, market share is a "first-guess" indicator of a firm's market control. If, for example, a company has a market share of 100 percent (that is, a monopoly), then you can rest assured it has a substantial amount of market control. A company with a 25 percent market share has less, but still notable, market control. In fact, when you get right down to the bottom line, the phrase "market share" is only worth mentioning for oligopolistic firms with a significant degree of market control. There really is no market control for a monopolistically competitive firm with a 0.00000001 percent market share.

CIVILIAN LABOR FORCE: Everyone in the economy, 16 years of age or older, who is neither institutionalized nor in the military, and is either employed or unemployed but actively seeking employment. The civilian labor force is the "official" specification for the national economy's labor supply. It is used for such calculations as the unemployment rate and the labor force participation rate. In particular, the unemployment rate is technically specified as the "percent of the civilian labor force that is unemployed." The size of the civilian labor force (along with the wildly popular unemployment rate) is estimated monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) from data generated by the Current Population Survey (CPS).
