Using weekly data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we updated our backgrounder today on how many weeks of unemployment insurance benefits are available across the country (see map).  It’s part of our Policy Basics series — short, non-technical reports on topics ranging from the federal budget process to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. Other Policy Basics that we have updated recently include those on SNAP (formerly the Food Stamp Program) and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
