Go to the dashboard.

We partnered with Travis County Economic Development to create this interactive dashboard of UI claims data in Travis County. The dashboard is updated monthly.

The information on this page summarizes UI claims beginning January 2020 from the Texas Workforce Commission. Businesses in Texas are required to report unemployment insurance claimant information to the TWC. Workforce Solutions Capital Area provides the TWC data to the County for this dashboard.


Workforce Solutions Capital Area is analyzing unemployment insurance claimant data to report on the economic impact of COVID-19 in Austin/Travis County.
