Indiana created jobs at a higher rate than nation in 2016


INDIANA (WOWO): Indiana has created jobs at a higher rate than the nation this year.

Indiana should add about 46,000 new jobs in 2017 and 37,500 in 2018, according to a new report from Ball State.

Ball State’s Center for Business and Economic Research developed the “2017 Economic Forecast for United States & Indiana.” According to the analysis, Indiana’s economy should grow by 2.1 percent in 2018.

“Going into the fourth quarter of 2016, Indiana’s economy seems to have weathered the year well,” said CBER director Michael Hicks. “Personal income growth in Indiana should outperform the nation as a whole, led by manufacturing, logistics, health care and professional services. However, real estate should have a slower recovery than other sectors.”

Hicks said the nation’s economic was projected to grow about 3 percent this year, but in reality it isn’t likely to exceed 1.5 percent.
