在截至11月14日的一周内,美国申请失业救济的人数比上一周修正后的71.1万人增加了3.1万人。


新华社华盛顿11月19日电美国劳工部19日公布,美国新冠肺炎病例激增,劳动力市场复苏放缓,上周美国首次申请失业救济人数上升至74.2万人。


美国劳工部劳工统计局(BLS)发布的一份报告显示,在截至11月14日的一周内,美国申请失业救济的人数比上一周修正后的71.1万人增加了3.1万人。


这是过去35周内该数字第五次降至80万以下。

 

劳工统计局的报告显示,消除数据波动性的四周移动均线下降13,750点,至742,000点。


报告显示,截至11月7日当周,继续领取失业救济的人数减少42.9万人,至637万人。


与此同时,截至10月31日当周,领取大流行性紧急失业救济的人数增加了233,458万人,达到438万人。紧急失业救济是一项联邦计划,为已经领取完常规州救济金的人提供额外13周的救济金。

 

截至10月31日当周,各州和联邦政府申领福利的总人数减少了841,245人,但仍保持在2,030万人的高位,显示出疫情严重扰乱了就业市场。


这份报告发布之际,美国大多数州的新冠肺炎病例正在激增。美国疾病控制与预防中心(U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)周三更新的数据显示,过去七天新增病例超过110万例。

 

为了应对感染激增,全国各地的州长最近恢复了限制性措施,以遏制病毒的传播。


由于新冠肺炎的关闭波及到了整个劳动力市场,在截至3月21日的当周,首次申请失业救济的人数增加了300万人,达到创纪录的330万人,然后在截至3月28日的当周又增加了一倍,达到创纪录的687万人。


此后,病例总数一直在下降,尽管仍处于历史高位,但自7月中旬以来,由于COVID-19病例再次出现,这一趋势曾出现几次逆转。

In the week ending Nov. 14, the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits increased by 31,000 from the previous week's upwardly revised level of 711,000.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 (Xinhua) -- The number of initial jobless claims in the United States rose to 742,000 last week, as the labor market recovery slows amid surging COVID-19 cases, the Labor Department reported on Thursday.

In the week ending Nov. 14, the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits increased by 31,000 from the previous week's upwardly revised level of 711,000, according to a report released by the department's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

It marks the fifth time in the past 35 weeks that the number has dipped below 800,000.

The four-week moving average, a method to iron out data volatility, decreased by 13,750 to 742,000, the BLS report showed.

The number of people continuing to collect regular state unemployment benefits in the week ending Nov. 7 decreased by 429,000 to 6.37 million, the report showed.

Meanwhile, the recipients of Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, a federal program that provides an additional 13 weeks of benefits for those who exhaust regular state benefits, rose by 233,458 to reach 4.38 million in the week ending Oct. 31.

The total number of people claiming benefits in all programs -- state and federal combined -- for the week ending Oct. 31 declined by 841,245 yet remained elevated at 20.3 million, indicating the pandemic's severe disruption of the labor market.

The claims report was released as COVID-19 cases are surging in most U.S. states. Over 1.1 million new cases were reported in the last seven days, according to data updated by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday.

In response to surging infections, governors across the country have recently reinstated restrictive measures to curb the spread of the virus.

As COVID-19 shutdowns rippled through the workforce, initial jobless claims spiked by 3 million to reach a record 3.3 million in the week ending March 21, and then doubled to reach a record 6.87 million in the week ending March 28.

After that, the number has been declining overall -- though still at historically high levels -- but the trend was reversed a few times since mid-July amid a resurgence in COVID-19 cases.
