Indiana's Unemployment Rate By the Numbers

Indiana continues to lead nation with a low unemployment rate

Florida's annual job growth rate of 1.9 percent continues to exceed the national rate of 1.7 percent.

According to a report issued Monday by the state Department of Labor, the number of unemployed job-seekers in ME declined by 2,500 over the past year to 21,000. Compared with this time last year, Maryland jobs are up by 8,700, an over-the-year change of 0.3 percent. The Illinois unemployment rate is down 0.4 percentage points from a year ago, when it was 5.2 percent. Charleston County boasts the lowest unemployment rate in the state at 4.0 percent.

For example, the jobless rate was listed as having dropped to a 16-year low of 4.1 percent from July through October. This drop is faster than the national decline of 5.2 percentage points.

The latest estimates now say that there are 397,000 unemployed people.

State jobs were made up by 1,700 jobs added to local government payrolls, a 0.2 percent increase. Indiana's total labor force is 3.3 million.

Florida's housing market also remains strong as median home prices rose $20,000 across the state in the past year.

There was a loss of 1,100 in trade, transportation and utilities jobs and a loss of 1,000 in the "other services" category. Not entirely, say state officials because the labor force is not growing fast enough to meet demand.

The largest job gains were in educational and health services, up 95,700 jobs (a 3.7 percent increase), construction, up 75,500 jobs (a 9.8 percent increase), and leisure & hospitality, up 58,400 jobs (a 3.0 percent increase). Those numbers are based on the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics' monthly household survey.
