Initial reports said the following..... "Initial jobless claims, which are a measure of the number of people recently laid off, fell by 30,000 to a seasonally adjusted 339,000, the lowest level in more than four years." Followed by a BIG "OOPS!"..... "But the Labor Department spokesman said the numbers were skewed by one large state that underreported its data. The spokesman declined to identify the state, but economists believe California is the only state large enough to have such a significant impact on the overall numbers. The spokesman said the lack of reporting affected the season adjustment for the week, likely by about 30,000 fewer claims." Jobless Claims Data Skewed Downward | Fox Business Well I'll be!!
