Indiana’s unemployment rate remained below the national rate, 3% compared to 3.7%, even as it ticked up higher than September’s low rate of 2.8%, according to the Department of Workforce Development. Indiana has had an unemployment rate under 3% for more than a year.

The unemployment rate is seasonally adjusted, a statistical technique to equalize month-to-month employment changes due to seasonal events like changing weather, harvests, major holidays and school schedules.
