Job Reports That Give the Whole Story

Each week, the Department of Labor puts out a report called the Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims Report.  This seasonally adjusted data gauges the health of the job market in the United States.  Of course, when there are a higher number of claims for unemployment, that indicates that the jobless rate may be increasing and when the number of claims for unemployment decrease, that indicates that the health of the job market in the United States is improving.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics puts out a Monthly Unemployment Report.  Each month the Current Employment Statistics (CES) program surveys about 150,000 businesses and government agencies, representing approximately 390,000 individual worksites, in order to provide detailed industry data on employment, hours, and earnings of workers on nonfarm payrolls.
