INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s unemployment rate stands at 3.2 percent for December and remains lower than the national rate of 3.5 percent.
Indiana’s labor force had a net increase of 1,948 over the previous month. This was a result of a decrease of 3 unemployed residents and an increase of 1,951 employed residents.
Private sector employment has decreased by 900 over the previous month. The monthly decrease is primarily due to losses in the Leisure and Hospitality (-1,600) and the Private Educational and Health Services (-900) sectors. Losses were partially offset by gains in the Trade, Transportation and Utilities (2,100) and the Construction (1,400) sectors.
Total private employment stands at 2,731,600, which is 500 below the December 2018 peak.
