Initial Unemployment Claims – Week 9

Writing this update as I am on the radio so being very quick with it, but I was able to get the new week’s numbers for initial claims processed.

The big takeaways are the high level, but slightly lower level of claims, in accommodation and food service sectors. In addition, the mining percentage of claims is up a bit again, just shy of 11% of claims since the start of COVID-19 issues in North Dakota. The second highest category continues to be health care and social assistance. On health care think elective procedures and the like, not necessarily essential workers like nurses.

I will prep a better look across the time span in the next few days to try to break this out for industries.
