Jobless rate in NWI lower than nation, state

Reports the Times: "The unemployment rate in Northwest Indiana remains lower than that of the state and nation, as a strong construction market and demand for steel keep people working.

Northwest Indiana had a non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 5.7 percent in July, with 19,200 people unable to find work, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That compares to the national non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 6 percent and the Indiana rate of 6.1 percent."
