US state map shows the percent change in unemployment claims over the past week from the previous week. Also included are total claims from the past week, the average 30-day number of claims and the change from one year ago.

Last week, more than 6.6 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits, far exceeding a record high set the week before, a sign that layoffs are accelerating in the midst of the coronavirus.
