  1. Hal Varian, and a coauthor I can’t recall, have a paper on doing just that for the U.S.. Their model is more accurate than previous forecasting models, apparently.

  2. Donald Marron has some important notes about using the Google unemployment numbers here.

    Not sure why that doesn’t seem to have gone through so I’ll try again. Apologies if I repeated myself.
