INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s unemployment rate has declined slightly in July from the previous month.

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development said Friday that the rate was 3.4%, down from 3.5% in June. The agency says the last time Indiana’s unemployment rate was at 3.4% was April 2018.

The state’s unemployment rate also was below the national rate of 3.7% for July.

Indiana’s labor force had a net decrease of more than 6,600 over the previous month, which was a result of about 1,275 less unemployed residents no longer seeking employment and a decrease of about 5,330 in residents employed. The state says Indiana’s total labor force is about 3.4 million.
