The area gained 14-hundred jobs.

The Elkhart-Goshen area held steady but continues to have the worst unemployment in Indiana at 10.1%percent.

The other 12 areas saw their jobless rates rise.

Bloomington posted the lowest jobless rate in the state at 6.9%.

Unlike state jobs figures released last week, metro employment numbers are not seasonally adjusted.
