Saturday Jul 19, 2014 12:21am

(UNDATED) - Unemployment rates throughout northeast Indiana went up during the month of June according to figures released by Indiana Workforce Development on Friday. Steuben County's unemployment rate in June was 5.8 percent after being at 5.5 percent in May. But it's better than the 7.7 percent jobless rate in June of last year.

Rates in neighboring counties went up from three-tenths to six-tenths of a percent. LaGrange County went back above five percent. They went from 4.5 percent in May to 5.1 percent in June.

Noble County's rate jump a half percent to 5.6 percent while DeKalb County went up to 5.4 percent.

The statewide unemployment rate went up to 5.9 percent in June which is still below the national rate of 6.1 percent.

Even though there were 10,000 additional private sector jobs in June, officials with Indiana Workforce Development say the jobless rate went up mainly due to 4,000 persons returning to the labor force to look for work.

Steuben County's work force increased by 531 persons in June. While 451 more workers were able to get a job in June compared to May, there were also 80 more unemployed members of the labor force.
