The COVID Pandemic and the Cleveland-Elyria Labor Market
In this webinar, we’ll examine regional data to learn how the COVID pandemic is affecting the labor market in the Cleveland-Elyria Metropolitan area. We’ll look at labor force statistics (the unemployment rate), unemployment insurance claims, and industry employment data. Unusual events such as the pandemic present a challenge to data collection, and we’ll talk about some of those issues. While it’s too early to tell how the pandemic will change the economy and how we work, we’ll look back at the Great Recession to see how it affected the labor force.
