Indiana unemployment rate stalls at 8.4 percent

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s unemployment rate remained stalled at 8.4 percent for July, putting it a full percentage point higher than the national jobless mark.

Figures released Monday by the state Department of Workforce Development show Indiana’s jobless rate stayed the same from June, with about 266,000 people looking for jobs last month.

The Indiana unemployment mark has shown little change in more than a year. The national level has gone during that time from about the same as Indiana’s to 7.4 percent for July.

Indiana’s jobless rate is lower than neighboring states other than Ohio.

Ten of Indiana’s 92 counties have unemployment marks higher than 10 percent. The worst rates are in Fayette and Sullivan counties.
