    Little confused here. Last week's numbers showed 381,000 claims (although the real number was closer to 500,000) so if this weeks number is -22,000 to 372,000 , doesn't that make last weeks number 394,000? So what is this weeks number?

    Must be a mis-print. It should be -15,000. I was confused too.

    It was a misprint indeed. Corrected to -15K.
