Indiana job report shows increase in jobs

Indiana's employment report for July came out Friday.

For the ninth consecutive month Indiana added private sector jobs, with July's increase totaling 3,300.

For 2012, the rate of job growth in the Hoosier state was at 1.7 %, compared to the national average of just 1 %

However, one of the most interesting aspects of this report is that between May and July, 25,000 gainfully employed Hoosiers disappeared from the work force. Surveyer's currently don't know why.

Breaking down July unemployment rates by county reveals that Starke County has the highest rate at 9.9 %, with St. Joseph not far behind at 9.

Pulaski and Kosciusko have the lowest rates at 6.8% and 7.3%

Both are lower than the state average of 9.2 %.
