Local Unemployment Report Indicates Continued Economic Recovery

Starke County’s unemployment rate ticked up in January but is still nearly half of what it was a year ago. The current rate of 3.3 percent represents a dramatic drop from the 6.2 percent posted in January of 2021. The monthly unemployment rate does not take seasonal events including changes in weather, harvests, major holidays, and school schedules into account, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
