    The unemployment rate comes from the household survey and is nearly as likely to be up as it is down, as there is a lot of noise in that series from month to month. At this stage in the recovery, 350k claims is consistent with good job growth numbers from the establishment survey, which is much less volatile. Claims levels below 350k are typical of mature expansions.
