Supplementary notes

* Initial claims made during the week ending August 1, 2020.
Advance claims are not directly comparable to claims reported in prior weeks as advance claims are reported by the state liable for paying the unemployment compensation, whereas previous weeks reported claims reflect claimants by state of residence. In addition, claims reported as "workshare equivalent" in the previous week are added to the advance claims as a proxy for the current week's "workshare equivalent" activity.
