Is there a single word or acronym for Unit Price ? I would prefer a word over acronym.

I will be using the word to represent a data column in a database.

    I'm not sure you can express the concept "unit price" in fewer words without losing some of the meaning. The only word I can think of would be "price", but then you would lose the specificity of it being a price per unit. – Holly Oct 2 '15 at 5:47

    What's wrong with UnitPrice or Unit_Price? – Jim Oct 2 '15 at 5:47

    Then just name it ppu (price per unit) and complain about over-restrictive naming conventions if challenged. – Jim Oct 2 '15 at 5:53

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is not about English but rather, about variable naming under abnormal constraints. – Jim Oct 2 '15 at 5:55

    @StudentX You're asking for a name, not just any word. – choster Oct 2 '15 at 15:17

For your purpose, I think rate would be adequate and sufficient:

a fixed charge per unit of quantity:

a rate of 10 cents a pound.

Reference: (see definition No. 3)

A single word you can use is rate. The symbol used is @.
