Unlike labor force participation as measured by the California Employment Development Department (EDD), the working age-population includes those who are excluded from the labor force due to incarceration, military service, disability or other factors that would prevent them from being included in data derived from the EDD or U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ calculation of labor force participation
