The following data extract is an excel file that contains demographic information on Massachusetts claimants dating from January 2015 to the present. The excel file has two tabs: 'Worksheet' and 'Claimant Data'. The 'Worksheet' tab allows you to compare and contrast claimant counts between different survey months and areas. The first two rows give you drop down menus that you can select that will let you cycle through the different dates and areas. Once you make a selection, the data below will be automatically changed. The 'Claimant Data' tab is a compilation of all the claimant information dating back to January 2015 in a tabular form.

All data in excel.
