There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  The Effects of Aggregate Unemployment Insurance Benefits in the U. S. on the Operation of a Local Economy
Release Date :
Abstract :
  In this report we present our estimate of the effects of UI benefit payments locally and nationally on the local economy of the Phoenix, Arizona SMSA (Maricopa County). Among the reported estimated effects of UI benefit payments are those pertaining to local sales, employment, unemployment, labor force, unemployment rate, population, and disposable personal income. These effects were obtained from computer simulations of the Maricopa County annual forecasting model and the Data Resources Incorporated (DRI) quarterly forecasting model for the U.S. The basic annual Maricopa County model was previously developed by the principal investigators under Department of Labor Contract [4]. The Maricopa model incorporates certain national variables that are forecasted by the DRI model.
