Critics of the unemployment insurance system, including most U.S. Presidents during the postwar period, have repeatedly urged the states to raise their ceilings on weekly unemployment benefits so that payments to the majority of beneficiaries would equal at least half their normal earnings. This study uses unique data describing the earnings and dependency status of eligible claimants in Ohio from 1965 to 1972 to appraise the major proposals that have been made on this subject, particularly that offered by President Nixon in 1973. The author demonstrates that these proposals would not have achieved their goal if adopted, and he suggests other standards to determine weekly benefit ceilings.
