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.
Data for the 2nd quarter of 2012 exclude Illinois, which did not submit a report.
For individuals receiving a UI first payment during the period July 2011 to June 2012, 62.4 percent were reemployed in the subsequent quarter, covering the period October 2011 to September 2012. The reemployment rate decreased from 67.3 percent for first payment recipients during the January to March 2012 quarter, to 60.0 percent for first payment recipients during the April to June 2012 quarter.
Reemployment for claimants who were not exempt from work search or Employment Service registration requirements decreased by 6 percentage points to 54.8 percent for claimants receiving a UI first payment during the 2nd quarter of calendar year 2012 (reemployment during the July to September 2012 quarter). Reemployment for exempt claimants decreased by 2.5 percentage points to 82.2 percent.
The UI reemployment rate for first payment recipients in the April to June 2012 quarter who found jobs within the same state as the liable state for the UI claim decreased by nearly 8 percentage points to 55.0 percent. However, the out-of-state reemployment rate increased by nearly 0.7 percentage points to 5.1 percent.
The number of first payment recipients in the April to June 2012 quarter decreased to 1.86 million, compared with 2.64 million during the January to March 2012 quarter. Over 80 percent of the UI first payment recipients during the April to June 2012 quarter were required to conduct an active work search and/or register with their state Employment Service.
States in the Chicago Region reported the highest reemployment rate for the four quarters ending June 2012, 68.5 percent (reflecting reemployment from October 2011 to September 2012). States in the Boston Region reported the lowest reemployment rate (55.9 percent).
