The state's unemployment rate for August also was below the national rate of 3.7% for the month.

Indiana's labor force had a net decrease of more than 2,100 over the previous month, which was a result of about 4,200 less unemployed residents no longer seeking employment and an increase of about 2,100 in residents employed.

The state says Indiana's total labor force is about 3.4 million.
