Average Wage, Inflation-Adjusted Percent Change

Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

The inflation-adjusted percent change in the average wage is cyclical, with declines or small gains common during recessions and larger increases usually occurring during expansions. The annual percent change in Arizona, though usually not much different from the national average, tends to be higher than the U.S. average when the economy is growing and lower during recessionary periods. Arizona’s percent change was below the U.S. average in five of the seven years from 2007 through 2013.
