Equity Portal - DWD Unemployment Claimants

This dataset provides information on Unemployment Insurance Claimants in Indiana. The unemployment claims are based on filings into DWD's Uplink system, the online system for filing unemployment benefits.

This data is received into DWD's Research and Analysis database on a weekly basis and details all claims filed and paid, starting in 2004 and updated through the most recent week.

In addition to the race and ethnicity data provided in the Equity Portal, other data points included in the weekly data file are as follows: weekly benefit amount, claim status, age, gender, education attainment, occupation upon separation and the industry sector and county of employer in which the claimant was employed prior to job separation.

Note that these are stored in DWD's Research and Analysis database, which is designed primarily as a research database and may not match exactly other counts produced by or for the Employment and Training Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor.
