While on the Jarrod Thomas Show (1310 KNOX AM Grand Forks) I updated the claims by industry graph. Multi-tasking!
I updated the initial claims data for North Dakota since we will get a look at the new data tomorrow.
Economic statistics are unable to keep up with the pace of change right now, so I tried to come up with a more accurate picture of the unemployment situation in North Dakota.
With a new initial claims observation for North Dakota I updated the data and the calculations and provide the cumulative numbers through the last observation and the current observation.
I look at the occupational sectors for recent ND initial unemployment claims to facilitate discussions about policy to assist impacted businesses.
