Initial Unemployment Insurance Claims Filed in Ohio’s Counties

R Demographics Unemployment Insurance Counties Ohio

A few weeks ago I was bemoaning the fact that the state was not releasing the weekly county-level initial and continued unemployment insurance claims data in anything but an old pdf format. How old you ask? You know, the kind the Census Bureau gave up in the 1990s. Preview image is by Dorothea Lange, courtesy of The New York Public Library and Unsplash.

A few weeks ago I was bemoaning the fact that the state was not releasing the weekly county-level initial and continued unemployment insurance claims data in anything but an old pdf format. How old you ask? You know, the kind the Census Bureau gave up in the 1990s. Anyhow, turns out the PDFs could be scraped with relatively little pain; thank you {tabulizer}!! So here are the data, only the weeks in 2020 for now but the plan is to update this weekly through the crisis, and to go back over the years as well, at least until September/October 2017, the earliest data releases I can find.
