Average Duration of Unemployment Claims

Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

This measure shows the average number of weeks an unemployment claimant remains on unemployment. The maximum duration of benefits is currently 16 weeks, which shows that most claimants do not use all of the benefits available to them.

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
