Note from JMM : Those figures does not include the 488,622 initial claims for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).

Figure B shows continuing claims in all programs over time (the latest data are for July 25). Continuing claims are 26.6 million above where they were a year ago. However, the above caveat about potential double counting applies here too, which means the trends over time should be interpreted with caution.
