  • Indiana continues to lead nation with a low unemployment rate

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development said Monday that the state's unemployment rate decreased one-tenth of a percentage point from the December rate. Construction posted the largest jobs increase with a gain of 11,100 jobs, followed by trade, transportation & utilities, up 10,800 and educational and health services, up 10,700. The state lost jobs in the government and financial activities sectors and experienced little change in manufacturing.

The jobless rate was 4.5 percent in January - the same level for the fourth consecutive month.

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. Within the sector, wholesale trade gained 800 jobs from 2016 to 2017, retail trade added 100 positions, and businesses in transportation, warehousing and utilities added 3,100 jobs.

Self-employed people, like proprietors or independent contractors, are not accounted for in unemployment figures, however.

Midfielder Paul Pogba remains a doubt, however, as United try to capitalise on the 0-0 draw in the first leg in Spain. In the second half, Liverpool were more dominant but it was the kind of dominance without danger.


The educational and health services sector rose by 3,900 jobs in 2017, and 28,600 or 11.7 percent over the past 10 years. "Over the year, manufacturing payrolls accounted for close to half of the total increase of jobs in IL".

The largest decline was in professional and business services, which lost 2,300 jobs. Florida also clocks in below the national rate for January which was 4.1 percent. Putnam County's 5.5 percent is the fifth highest jobless rate in Florida.

California's eleven industry sectors added a total of 400,100 jobs over the year.

When people stop looking for work, they are no longer considered unemployed for the goal of calculating the jobless rate, thus lowering the rate. This compares with 351,959 in December and 386,875 in January of past year. Mining and logging remained unchanged.

An individual who exhausts or is ineligible for benefits is still reflected in the unemployment rate if he or she actively seek work.
