Labor Force Strength by Country

Authored By Staff Writer | Last Updated: 2/17/2015

An oft-overlooked factor of wartime industry is a nation's labor force which directly influences much-needed production.

The power of a nation's labor force directly reflects wartime output concerning all manner of military industry - bullets, bombs, uniforms, spares, specialized field equipment, medicine, etc... Traditionally, and expectedly so, larger overall populations have fielded larger labor forces (as exemplified by the China, India and the United States). This listing does not take into account labor force quality or education.
