Per Capita Dividends, Interest and Rent, Inflation-Adjusted Percent Change
Nationally, the inflation-adjusted percent change in per capita dividends, interest and rent is highly cyclical, ranging from declines that are common during recessions to large increases in some years of strong economic growth. While the percent changes in Arizona also are cyclical, they have been more erratic than the U.S. average.
After posting gains in per capita dividends, interest and rent larger than the national average in each year from 2003 through 2005, Arizona did considerably worse than the U.S. average in each year from 2006 through 2012. In 2013, the figure dropped marginally in Arizona and the nation.
