Trends in the auto insurance industry in 2018 were good for State Farm. As rates went up 5% industry-wide, the company brought in $81.7 billion in revenue—$8.8 billion of which was profit, a one-year boost of nearly 300%. The Illinois-based property and casualty insurer also ended 2018 with 8,876 fewer employees than it had 12 months earlier. The company attributes the shrinkage in part to its increased use of automation and technology.
