EDITOR’S NOTE: Per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), sub-state level data are not seasonally adjusted due to sample size. For example, over the course of a year, the size of the labor force, employment and unemployment levels, and other measures of labor market undergo fluctuations due to seasonal events including changes in weather, harvests, major holidays, and school schedules. Therefore, for more accurate comparisons, data should be compared to the same month from prior years, not the previous month, as to better account for non-economic factors.

The June 2018 Indiana Employment Report will be released on Friday, July 20, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. (EDT) and the June 2018 Indiana County, City and MSA Employment Report will be released on Monday, July 23, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. (EDT).
