Indiana's total labor force continues to stand at more than 3.33 million, and the state's 64.3 percent labor force participation rate remains above the national rate of 62.9 percent.

The state's Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development preliminarily reported for July that 3,536,900 MA residents were employed and 160,700 were unemployed, for a total labor force of 3,697,500. Over the year, other services are up 2,000 (+1.5 percent) jobs.

The District, Maryland and Virginia each saw the size of their labor forces grow over the past year.

The region was ranked 33rd out of the 46 regions in the state, down two spot, with 308,100 in the labor work force, 289,100 people employed and 19,000 people unemployed in July.

"The strong employment growth exhibited in the U.S.is not being felt in Illinois", said Jeff Mays, director of the Illinois Department of Employment Security. The year-over change, July 2016 to July 2017, shows an increase of 276,300 jobs (up 1.7 percent).

MS payrolls rose to 1.15 million in July. In July 2016, the unemployment rate was 5.2 percent, according to Weaver.

Overall, employers lost about 7,900 jobs in the past month. Only Oregon with a 2.9 percent increase had a bigger gain, the bureau said.

Financial activities added 1,300 (+0.6 percent) jobs over the month. A year ago, MS had 5.9 percent unemployment.

"We're seeing much more positive trends", Walls said. "The growth is in a good portion of the sectors you like to see".

Industries that reported the largest month-over-month hiring were construction, which rose by 3,200 jobs; leisure and hospitality, which rose by 3,200 jobs; and trade, transportation and utilities, which rose by 2,300 jobs.

Now, an increase in leisure and hospitality is normal for this time of year, of course.
