ABSTRACT
The article reports that first-time applications for state unemployment fell by 1,000 to 310,000 in the week ended February 26, 2005, according to data released by the U.S. Labor Department yesterday. The applications figure was above the 300,000 claims predicted by IFR BondData Americas' poll of economists, and was down from the previous week's revised figure of 311,000, which was originally reported as 312,000. The four-week moving average, typically seen as a better gauge of unemployment, was 307,000, a decrease of 1,500 from the previous week's revised average of 308,500, previously reported as 308,750.
