Weekly unemployment claims continue decline

first_imgWeekly unemployment claims fell for the fourth consecutive week. This follows an end-of-the-year spike in new claims. It comes on the heels of a rise in the Vermont unemployment rate of 6.9 percent in December 2009, up from 6.4 percent in November. It is not clear at this point whether a drop in claims will result in a drop in the January 2010 unemployment rate, which will not be released until March. Year-to-year claims are also down. For the week of January 23, 2010, there were 1,022 new regular benefit claims for Unemployment Insurance last week, a decrease of 244 from the week before. Altogether 14,835 new and continuing claims were filed, a decrease of 217 from a week ago and 1,070 fewer than a year earlier. The Department also processed 4,932 First Tier claims for benefits under Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (EUC08), 74 fewer than a week ago. In addition, there were 3,208 Second Tier claims for benefits processed under the EUC08 program, which is an increase of 40 from the week before.
