Number of Weeks Compensated by Unemployment Insurance


The number of weeks unemployment insurance was paid to each unemployed, summed across all the unemployed.


Methodological Notes: 

The Unemployment Insurance (UI) program provides unemployment benefits to eligible workers who become unemployed through no fault of their own, and meet certain other eligibility requirements. Recipients who work part-time can receive partial benefits. This indicator includes all weeks for which benefits were paid, including both total and partial unemployment.
