State-by-State Unemployment Claims by Health Care Workers 1/2020 – 3/2020

Four exhibits show the rate of unemployment claims filed by health care workers from January to March 2020 based on monthly unemployment claims data from the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor. We compared unemployment claims by health care workers with the number of health care workers employed using the Occupational Employment Statistics data and Quarterly Census Employment and Wages data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the U.S. Department of Labor.
