New Unemployment Insurance Claims for The Week of July 14, 2018

Earlier today, the Labor Department released its weekly report on New Jobless Insurance Claims for the week that ended on July 14, 2018:

Predicted: 220,000
Actual: 207,000

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): 215,000
  • 4-Week Moving Average: 220,500
========

From today's report:

"...the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 207,000, a decrease of 8,000 from the previous week's revised level. This is the lowest level for initial claims since December 6, 1969 when it was 202,000..."
