Jobless claims end year nicely under 500,000

It was nice to see a sub 500,000 jobless claims number to end the year after an ugly November and December. However, should note that the fine print is not as good because this number was completely dominated by seasonal adjustments. The actual unadjusted number of 718,468 was actually higher than last week’s actual unadjusted 716,576.
