Unemployment Insurance Reemployment Rates
Each calendar quarter states report, on the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) 9047 report, the number of UI first payments for which intrastate or out-of-state wages are reported in the subsequent quarter.
The following charts and tables summarize UI Reemployment by several criteria. The quarter-ending date refers to the quarter in which the claimant receives a first UI payment. Data are displayed by quarter or cumulatively for four quarters, as indicated.
- Second quarter 2018 data for Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee are missing.
- Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands currently have waivers on reporting and not all quarters of data are included in this report
For individuals receiving a UI first payment during the period July 2017 to June 2018, 65.7 percent were reemployed in the subsequent quarter, covering the period October 2017 to September 2018. The reemployment rate decreased from 72.5 percent for first payment recipients during the January to March 2018 quarter, to 64.4 percent for first payment recipients during the April to June 2018 quarter.
Reemployment for claimants who were not exempt from work search or Employment Service registration requirements decreased 5.74 percentage points to 59.8 percent for claimants receiving an UI first payment during the 2nd quarter of calendar year 2018 (reemployment during the July to September 2018 quarter).
