    Follow on to an earlier theme: unemployment, as we all understand it, is a consistent measure. Inserting caveats such as “people are dropping out of the labor force and going on disability,” or “you’re not counting those who gave up looking for a job” just don’t cut it.

    (Ignore the sharp drop-off on the right of the first graph: no data on population for the final data point.)

    ADD: Since 2014, we've had the lowest weekly claims as a percent of the relevant population, in 50 years.
