nTIDE May 2021 COVID Update:

Minimal changes in unemployment indicate slow pace of recovery

National Trends in Disability Employment (nTIDE) – issued semi-monthly by Kessler Foundation and the University of New Hampshire

East Hanover, NJ. June 18, 2021. The May 2021 numbers for furloughed workers remained relatively steady, according to today’s National Trends in Disability Employment (nTIDE) COVID Update. This mid-month nTIDE follows two key unemployment indicators – furloughs, or temporary layoffs, and the number of people looking for work, comparing trends for people with and without disabilities. The COVID-19 pandemic precipitated an unprecedented rise in furloughs and people looking for work, prompting the addition of this mid-month nTIDE COVID Update in the spring of 2020.
