From the Summary: "A defining feature of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis in the labor market has been sharp and historically unprecedented increases in the number of initial unemployment insurance (UI) claims. This policy brief uses close to real-time information on daily initial UI claims in California from the state's Employment Development Department to better understand the magnitude of COVID-19's labor market impacts and how different types of workers are experiencing these impacts. This research is based on a partnership between the Labor Market Information Division of the California Employment Development Department and the California Policy Lab, a research center at the University of California, with sites at the UCLA [University of California, Los Angeles] and Berkeley campuses."
