## Marginal Product of Labor Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the marginal product of labor.

MPL = O / L

- Where MPL is the marginal product of labor
- O is the change in output
- L is the change in labor

## Marginal Product of Labor Definition

The marginal product of labor is a ratio of the change in output that occurs with a change in labor. It measures how much output changes with changing labor forces. In ideal situations, an increase in labor would yield an increase in output. This will yield a ratio greater than 1.

## Marginal Product of Labor Example

How to calculate a marginal product of labor?
