 SAVING FUNCTION: The positive relation between household saving and household disposable income. The saving function is commonly presented as the saving line or propensity-to-saving line. The slope of this line is the marginal propensity to save, which is the proportion of any additional income used for saving. The saving function and the marginal propensity to saving play key roles in the multiplier and accelerator concepts. Because consumption is the difference between disposable income and saving, the consumption function is a complementary relation to the saving function.

 Lesson 12: Elasticity and Demand | Unit 3: Measurement Page: 10 of 25

• Suppose we have the following price and quantity values for the demand of calling minutes in cellular phones:

P1 = 10 cents, Q1 = 5 million minutes, P2 = 11 cents, and Q2 = 4.5 million minutes.

• Plugging theses numbers into the formula gives us:

 elasticity = - 0.105 ÷ 0.095 = - 1.105

• While the quick and dirty elasticity indicates exactly unit elastic demand (1 on the nose), the midpoint formula indicates relatively elasticity demand (1.105).

The proportion of the total noninstitutionalized civilian population 16 years of age and over that is in the civilian labor force. The labor force participation rate is essentially the ratio of the civilian labor force to the total noninstitutionalized civilian population 16 years of age and over. The data used to estimated the labor force participation rate is obtained along with other labor force data from the monthly Current Population Survey conducted by the Bureau of the Census for the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
