IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS — In­di­ana’s un­em­ploy­ment re­mained steady in Oc­to­ber from Septem­ber.

The In­di­ana Depart­ment of Work­force De­vel­op­ment said Fri­day the rate was flat at 3.5 per­cent.

The state’s un­em­ploy­ment rate re­mained be­low the na­tional rate of 3.7 per­cent. With the ex­cep­tion of Oc­to­ber 2014, when it was equal to the na­tional rate, the state’s un­em­ploy­ment rate has been be­low the U.S. rate for more than five years.

In­di­ana’s la­bor force had a net in­crease of more than 5,300 over the pre­vi­ous month, which was a re­sult of more than 2,400 un­em­ployed res­i­dents no longer seek­ing em­ploy­ment and an about 2,900 in­crease in res­i­dents em­ployed.
