New unemployment claims drop to lowest in the year

July 9, 2009

Weekly figures tend to be quite volatile this time of year as government statisticians try to predict the timing of annual layoffs at auto and other manufacturing plants, leading to choppy swings in the seasonally-adjusted data that could be reversed in coming weeks.”
