Indiana unemployment at 3.3 percent


INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s unemployment rate was at 3.3 percent for December.

Indiana’s labor force had a net decrease of almost 7300 over the previous month. This was a result of 4,105 unemployed residents no longer seeking employment within the past four weeks, and a 3,189 decrease in residents employed.

Indiana's initial unemployment insurance claims continue to be at historic lows.

Private sector employment increased by 3,000 over the previous month, primarily due to gains in the Construction (2,400) and the Leisure and Hospitality (1,700) sectors. Gains were partially offset by losses in Mining and Logging, IT and Other Services, and the Professional and Business Services (-700) sectors.
