Unemployment: The Covered Unemployed and the Federal Deficit

The covered unemployed as a percent of the unemployed continues to drop.
Covered (insured) unemployed persons (CCSA) divided by total unemployed (UNEMPLOY).
Perhaps as expected, government spending deficit (shown here as ratio of spending:taxes) is dropping along with the unemployment rate.
Federal spending divided by federal receipts (blue; left); unemployment rate (red; right).
These charts were posted using their URL links, which I found out will update as the FRED database is updated.
