Indiana’s unemployment rate remained unchanged in September, the first time in five months the rate didn’t go down.
The Indiana unemployment rate stayed at 4.5-percent last month. That’s still its lowest level in nearly a year and lower than all of its neighboring states.
The private sector added about 10,000 jobs for the month, the sixth consecutive month of increases. Gains came in almost all employment areas - the only outlier was the trade, transportation and utilities sector, which shed 1,300 jobs.
