Weekly Claims November 11

This graph shows the 4-week moving average of weekly claims since January 2000.

The dashed line on the graph is the current 4-week average. The four-week average of weekly unemployment claims decreased this week by 10,000 to 446,500.

This is the lowest level for the 4-week moving average since January of this year September 2008 - an improvement over recent months, but still elevated - and still a sign of weakness in the job market.
