SOUTH BEND, Ind. High tech jobs are booming in Indianapolis, but a new study shows South Bend is behind.

The Circle City had 39 percent more jobs in science, technology, engineering and math in 2012 compared to 2001.

That's more than double the national growth rate of 17 percent.

The rest of the state saw an increase too, but cities like South Bend and Terre Haute had fewer of those jobs in 2012 than in 2001.

The Indiana Business Journal based its analysis on information from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
