INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s unemployment rate continued to drop to 3.2 percent for September.
The last time Indiana's unemployment rate was lower than 3.2 percent was December 2000.
Indiana’s labor force had a net decrease of 2,722 over the previous month. This was a result of a decrease of 2,934 unemployed residents and an increase of 212 employed residents.
Private sector employment decreased by 3,400 over the previous month. That is primarily due to losses in the Leisure and Hospitality (-2,000) and the Manufacturing (-1,000) sectors. Losses were partially offset by gains in the Construction (1,700) and the Financial Activities (400) sectors.
Unemployment rates for cities and counties are due out Monday.
