Labor Force Strength by Country (2020)



Ranking of labor force strengths of countries from largest to smallest.



Global Firepower tracks the power of a nation's labor force as it can directly effect wartime output concerning military industry - bullets, bombs, uniforms, spares, specialized field equipment, medicine, etc... Traditionally, and expectedly so, larger overall populations field larger labor forces (China, India, and the United States). This listing does not take into account local industry quality.

Data presented on this list is through 2018. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
