SATISFACTION: The process of successfully fulfilling wants and needs. A basic fact of life is that people want and need stuff to stay alive and to make that life more enjoyable. Satisfaction is the economic term that captures this wants-and-needs-fulfilling process. Satisfying wants and needs is actually the ultimate goal of economic activity, the end result of addressing the fundamental problem of scarcity, and, when you get right down to it, life itself.

NOT IN THE LABOR FORCE

Anyone who is not classified by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) as members of the labor force, either employed persons or unemployed persons. This catch-all category is largely comprised of several notable segments of the population, such as young, elderly, homemakers, and military. However, it includes others who are either unwilling or unable to engage in productive activities for assorted reasons. The "not in the labor force" numbers are computed monthly by the BLS along with other employment and labor force information using data generated by the Current Population Survey.
