(UNDATED) - Indiana's unemployment rate has continued its recent upward trend by increasing to 8.9% for September.

Figures released Friday by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development show the state's jobless rate rose from 8.7% in August, with about 266,000 people looking for work last month.

Workforce Development Commissioner Mark Everson says the state saw an addition of nearly 9,000 private sector jobs in September, but that was offset by more people seeking jobs.

Indiana's unemployment rate remains below the national rate of 9.1% and that of all the neighboring states. The state's jobless figure has gone up four straight months since being at 8.2% in April and May.
