Abstract :
  The present report which analyzes the decline in UI benefit recipiency is divided into five sections. First, it presents some background facts about the decline. Second, it reviews previous literature that has examined this phenomenon. Third, it presents a descriptive analysis of new survey data collected expressly for the purpose of addressing the question. Fourth, it presents a statistical analysis of application rates and benefit recipiency rates based on the new data. Fifth, a short concluding section speculates on the reasons for the decline in benefit recipiency in light of the previous literature and the analysis of the new survey data.
