State jobless rate reaches 5-year low

Indiana's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 6.4 percent in January, down four-tenths of 1 percentage point, its lowest rate since September 2008, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development said today.

On an unadjusted basis, 10 of 11 northeast Indiana counties had rates lower than the state average of 6.6 percent, the agency reported.

The highest county rate in the area was in Steuben County, at 6.9 percent; the lowest in LaGrange County, at 5.3 percent. Allen County's unadjusted rate was 6.1 percent.
