Earlier today, the Labor Department released its weekly report on New Jobless Insurance Claims for the week that ended on  March 21, 2020:

====================

Predicted: 1,000,000

  • Actual: 3,283,000 (This marks the highest level of seasonally adjusted initial claims in the history of the seasonally adjusted series. The previous high was 695,000 in October of 1982.)
====================

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): 282,000
  • 4-Week Moving Average: 998,250

====================

From This Morning's Report:

"...During the week ending March 21, the increase in initial claims are due to the impacts of the COVID-19 virus. Nearly every state providing comments cited the COVID-19 virus impacts. States continued to cite services industries broadly, particularly accommodation and food services. Additional industries heavily cited for the increases included the health care and social assistance, arts, entertainment and recreation, transportation and warehousing, and manufacturing industries..."
