Jobless Claims in U.S. Increase Less Than Forecast

Bloomberg (09/19/13) Victoria Stilwell

U.S. jobless claims climbed less than expected last week as California and Nevada worked through a backlog of applications from the previous week. Claims rose by 15,000 to 309,000 in the week ended Sept. 14, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. A Bloomberg forecast of economists had anticipated 330,000 claims. The less-volatile four-week moving average declined to 314,750, the lowest since October 2007.
