Indiana’s unemployment dropped precipitously since the height of the recession.  Its rate tied for the 20th lowest in the country as of March 2017 according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.  The Indiana Business Review reported that Indiana boasts the number one position in the country in 2016 in the percentage of its gross state product earned by manufacturing.  The outlook for accountants is positive. Indiana Department of Workforce Development figures predict a 14.2 percent growth of job increase s in the profession between 2014 and 2024.

As part of the Corn Belt, Indiana has a large agriculture and food processing sector. Manufacturing, logistics and health care are also major economic drivers. The state is home to a number of Fortune 500 companies including health insurer WellPoint and pharma giant Eli Lily. On the industrial side are Cummins, Steel Dynamics and NiSource. American Commercial Lines is a major logistics firm and BrightPoint leads in telecommunications. In addition to the 'Big Four' certified public accountant (CPA) firms, two Indiana companies, Katz Sapper & Miller, LLP and Blue & Co., LLC, have made Inside Public Accounting's Top 100 list.

According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development May 2016 report, the median income among accountants in Indiana is $60,700. An experienced accountant in Bloomington can more than double this figure.  Accountants in the top 10 percent in Bloomington averaged $127,130.
