Indiana Unemployment Rate Drops

Indiana’s unemployment rate has dropped to 6.1 percent in February.

The state Department of Workforce Development says that Indiana’s jobless rate for February fell two-tenths of a percentage point from January’s 6.3 percent.

Indiana’s unemployment hasn’t been this low since August 2008.

Still there are parts of Indiana that have much higher unemployment rates.

 The highest rates are in Vermillion County with an unemployment rate of 11.1 percent while Lawrence County has a rate of 10 percent.

The state’s rate in February was below the rates in Illinois (8.7 percent), Kentucky (7.8 percent), Michigan (7.7 percent) and Ohio (6.5 percent).
