【美国】申请失业救济人数下降

Jobless claims average falls by 5,000

The US four-week moving average of initial claims for unemployment insurance fell to 234,500 last week, down 5,000 from the previous week's average, the US Department of Labor reported. The previous week's average was also revised downward by 500.

The four-week moving average decreases the volatility of the weekly numbers. Total initial claims for unemployment insurance for the week ended Jan. 27 fell to 230,000, down 1,000 from the previous week's level, which was revised downward by 2,000.

Reuters reported the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, pointing to a tightening labor market and strengthening economy at the start of the year. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 238,000 in the latest week.

美国劳工部发布的一项报告称,上周美国首次申领失业救济金的平均人数下降至234500人,比之前的平均水平下降了5000人,而前一周的平均值也下调了500。

这四周移动的平均值降低了每周数据的波动性。截止到1月27日,首次申领失业救济金人数降至23万人,较前一周下降1,000人,降幅为2000人。

据路透社报道,上周美国申请失业救济人数意外下降,这表明了2018年年初经济有所增长,劳动力市场需求趋紧。路透社的经济学家预测,在最近的一周内,申领失业救济金的人数将升至23.8万人。
