jobless claims
I do, strictly speaking, have better things to be doing. The labor market continues on a trajectory of improvement that, at least by some measures, it has sustained consistently for half a year.

The (seasonally adjusted) jobless claims number from last week is 530,000, while the week before was revised from 545,000 to 552,000.

The endpoints on the lines were at 551,500 and 542,300, respectively.

Backing out some of the seasonal adjustment, the number is down three weeks in a row, to 504,000 from last week's 512,000.

These lines end at 515,000 and 523,000, respectively.
