Jobless Numbers in a Nutshell

Initial Jobless Claims:

Survey: 2,400,000

Actual: 2,438,000

Prior Week: 2,981,000

Prior Week Revised: 2,687,000

Continuing Jobless Claims:

Survey: 24,250,000

Actual: 25,073,000

Prior Week: 22,833,000

Prior Week Revised: 22,548,000


The largest increases in initial claims for the week ending May 9 were in Florida (+48,222), Georgia (+14,420), Washington (+8,615), New York (+4,309), and South Dakota (+1,340), while the largest decreases were in California (-103,590), Texas (-102,382), Oklahoma (-54,806), North Carolina (-28,602), and Missouri (-21,382).

Interesting that Georgia saw one of the highest increases in initial claims, considering they opened back up last month.
