June 2020 Unemployment Insurance Claims Report:
Initial, Continued Claims Down from May
Beginning with the June 2020 Unemployment Insurance (UI) monthly claims report, the focus will temporarily shift to over-the-month changes in the claims data rather than over-the-year changes. This analysis will provide a better understanding of the month-to-month changes in the higher UI claims that have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic and declining oil prices.
From May to June, Wyoming saw over-the-month decreases in both initial and continued UI claims. Wyoming had 7,979 initial claims in June, down 25.7% from May. Total continued weeks claimed decreased 12.5% to 83,807 in June. There were 22,717 individuals with continued claims, down 10.6% from May.
Most industries experienced a decrease in initial claims compared to May, including leisure & hospitality (44.0%) and mining (-26.5%), among others.
Although most industries showed a decrease in continued weeks claimed, increases were seen in mining (20.8%) and financial activities (4.7%).
