INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana gained 25,300 private sector jobs in November, the largest one-month increase in The Hoosier State on record. All employment sectors saw significant growth, with the exception of the leisure and hospitality sector, which was unchanged for the month. Employment sectors experiencing the largest increases in hiring over the month were Trade, Transportation & Utilities (+6,800), Construction (+5,400), Manufacturing (+4,800), and Professional and Business services (+4,700). Indiana was responsible for nearly 13 percent of the nation’s private sector job growth in November. 

Indiana’s unemployment rate declined in November as well, dropping 0.2 percent to 7.3 percent, lower than all neighboring states. Fewer Hoosiers are now unemployed (232,400), than in November of 2008 (240,600). 

"Today's job numbers are welcome news to every Hoosier and are a testament to the hard working people of our state and the businesses that power Indiana's economy every day", said Governor Mike Pence. "The continued downward trend in unemployment and the significant growth in private sector jobs demonstrate that Indiana's economy is strong and growing stronger every day," said Governor Mike Pence.

“November was a historic month of job growth in Indiana,” said Scott B. Sanders, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. “It is encouraging that fewer Hoosiers are unemployed than in November of 2008, and the unemployment rate has dropped by more than a percentage point over the past few months. However, we need to keep the ball moving by strengthening Indiana’s pro-growth climate.” 

Sanders also noted claims for unemployment insurance continue to be at their lowest levels since 2000.
