EUC figures cover November 2012 to January 2013 (the latest months for which data are available). See: http://workforcesecurity.doleta.gov/unemploy/euc.asp.

Due to state law changes passed at the beginning of the year, unrelated to the federal sequester, North Carolina will no longer qualify to receive federal EUC benefits as of June 30, 2013.
