Per Capita Personal Income as Percentages of the National Averages, 2013

Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

Reasonable targets for Arizona are for the state’s per capita personal income to be within 5 percent of the national average, for the larger metro counties to have a figure within 5 percent of the U.S. metro average, and for the nonmetro counties to have a figure within 5 percent of the nonmetro average.

Among Arizona’s eight metropolitan counties, per capita personal income in 2013 was 13 percent below the U.S. metro average in Maricopa County, between 20-and-22 percent lower in Cochise, Coconino, and Pima counties, and 30-to-45 percent lower in the other counties. Among the seven nonmetro counties, the figure was slightly above the U.S. nonmetro average in Greenlee, between 7-and-14 percent below in Gila and La Paz counties, and from 24-to-28 percent below the nonmetro average in the other four nonmetro counties.
