Due to its complexity, many topics related to economics require detailed editorial comments, often supported by related tables and graphs. At the same time, though, there are many topics (for example, related to demographics, housing beginnings, etc.) that require convincing “brief” visualizations. Whichever route is taken, the point of the trip, almost always, is to arrive at a base line or two. To provide additional value, ConstructConnect is now pleased to offer a continuous series of 1000 word graphs. This will help readers sort the “big picture” more clearly. This 1,000-word graph looks at initial jobless claims in the US as of April 3, 2021. Weekly US primary job claims – as of April 3, 2021 Data source: Department of Labor. Diagram: ConstructConnect.
