FRED Adds Weekly Report on Pandemic Claims

FRED has added 159 new series from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration’s weekly report on pandemic claims.¬†

These state-level data include initial claims for unemployment assistance for workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic (including those workers who are not ordinarily eligible for unemployment benefits), as well as continued claims for unemployment assistance and emergency unemployment compensation for these workers. 

More details about the data and the expanded¬†eligibility requirements are available from the Department of Labor’s FAQs for unemployment insurance relief.¬†
