How Many Workers Are in the US

One way of measuring economic dynamism

The working age population, generally defined as those aged 15 to 64, is often used as a key indicator for measuring a country's economic potential.

The working-age population in the US was 208,277,722 – up about 60 million since 1980 – in February 2023. Notably, the WAP has not changed significantly in recent years: hovering slightly above 205 million since 2016.
