Changes to State Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims Update Schedule

As of this week, FRED will update the State Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims data from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration on Fridays at 8:30 am Eastern Time, instead of Thursdays. Also, FRED will include one additional week of data; that is, each weekly update will include claims data for each state as of the prior week, similar to the national release.

To facilitate this change, the state-level weekly claims data have been moved to their own release. There will be no changes made to the U.S. Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims release; the data will continue to update on Thursdays at 8:30 am Eastern Time, as soon as the news release is available from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
