Indiana’s unemployment rate has remained steady in April from March.

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development said Friday that the rate stood at 3.6%. The state’s unemployment rate matched the national rate as well for the month.

Indiana’s labor force had a net increase of nearly 1,350 over the previous month, which was a result of about 30 more unemployed residents no longer seeking employment and an increase of 1,320 in residents employed. The state says Indiana’s total labor force is about 3.4 million.
