Monthly report on the number of people claiming unemployment benefits. The report is categorized by claimant age, length of time searching for employment, location, and occupation. A declining trend is seen as a positive economic indicator as it suggests a greater number of people are working from the previous month and this tends to increase the value of the currency.
