A Guide to the Analysis of UI Recipients' Unemployment Spells Using a Supplemented CWBH Data Set
Mathematica Policy Research
The Continuous Wage and Benefit History (CWBH) database provides states and other users with a longitudinal database of a sample of Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants. This report has been prepared to provide a guide for replication of a previous study of unemployment spells by state Continuous Wage and Benefit History (CWBH) users. Furthermore, since future studies may address somewhat different questions, suggestions are made on how the data collection strategy could be modified to examine additional or alternative policy questions.
