Unemployment benefits applications remain unchanged in the US

The US Department of Labor has released data on weekly jobless claims. Accordingly, the number of people claiming unemployment benefits for the first time in the country remained unchanged compared to the previous week, reaching 205 thousand in the week ending December 18.

In this period, applications for unemployment benefits followed a course in line with expectations. The previous week’s data on the number of unemployment benefits applications was revised from 206 thousand to 205 thousand.

As of last week, 4-week average unemployment benefits applications increased by 2 thousand 750 compared to the previous week and became 206 thousand 250.

Ongoing unemployment applications, on the other hand, were recorded as 1 million 859 thousand in the week ending December 11, with a decrease of 8 thousand compared to the previous week.

The number of people applying for unemployment benefits for the first time in the USA peaked at 6 million at the end of March last year, as the coronavirus epidemic affected the labor market.
