From the Document: "Because of effects of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the United States has seen both high unemployment levels and record rates of change in those levels. This has made it difficult to forecast unemployment from one month to the next. This Insight discusses the current state of unemployment, how unemployment might change over the next few years, and what those changes would mean for the economy."
