The Indiana Department of Workforce Development said Tuesday that the state's unemployment rate decreased three-tenths of a percentage point from the November rate.

"To the extent that outside forces are moving in a pretty positive direction, that is a big lift for the local economy", Bailey said. Trade, transportation and warehousing dropped by 300 jobs, and the retail portion was unchanged over the month. The rate was 0.3 percent lower than estimates from December 2016. Employment in educational and health services rose 5,800. Other services slipped by 100 jobs. Gains were partially offset by losses in the Professional & Business Services (-4,100) and the Financial Activities (-1,900) sectors.
