FACTOR DEMAND CURVE: A graphical representation of the relationship between the price to a factor of production and quantity of the factor demanded, holding all ceteris paribus factor demand determinants constant. The factor demand curve is one half of the factor market. The other half is factor supply. The factor demand curve indicates the quantity of a factor that would be demanded at alternative factor prices. While all factors of production, or scarce resources, including labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship, have factor demand curves, labor is the factor most often analyzed. Like other demand curves, the factor demand curve is negatively sloped. Higher factor prices are associated with smaller quantities demanded and lower factor prices go with larger quantities demanded.

CONSUMER PRICE INDEX

An index of prices of goods and services typically purchased by urban consumers. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is compiled and published monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), using price data obtained from an elaborate survey of 25,000 retail outlets and quantity data generated by the Consumer Expenditures Survey. The CPI is one of two key price indexes used as a measure of the price level and to estimate the inflation rate. The other is the GDP price deflator. The CPI is also officially designated as the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U). Another noted price index is the Producer Price Index (PPI).
