The region reported higher joblessness for the third consecutive month in January with 9.1 percent unemployment, up from a revised 8.2 percent in December, preliminary figures from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development showed Monday.

Statewide, seasonally adjusted unemployment rose to 8.6 percent in January, up from 8.3 percent in December.

In October, metro Fort Wayne – which is composed of Allen, Whitley and Wells counties – saw its unemployment drop below 7 percent for the first time since October 2008.
