Earlier today, the Labor Department released its weekly report on New Jobless Insurance Claims for the week that ended on March 24, 2018:

Predicted: 228,000
Actual: 215,000

The yellow-highlighted figure represents the number of first-time claims for unemployment benefits for the entire United States. The "predicted" figure is what economists were expecting, while the "actual" is the true or real figure.

  • Previous Week (revised): 227,000
  • 4-Week Moving Average: 224,500

From today's report:

"In the week ending March 24, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 215,000, a decrease of 12,000 from the previous week's revised level. This is the lowest level for initial claims since January 27, 1973 when it was 214,000..."

"...Claims taking procedures in Puerto Rico and in the Virgin Islands have still not returned to normal..."
