Earnings Per Employee as Percentages of the National Averages, 2013

Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

Reasonable targets for Arizona are for the state’s earnings per employee to be near the national average, for the larger metro counties to have a figure near the U.S. metro average, and for the nonmetro counties to have a figure equal to the nonmetro average.

Among Arizona’s eight metropolitan counties, earnings per employee in 2013 ranged from 8 percent less than the U.S. metro average in Maricopa to 38 percent below average in Yavapai. In contrast, among the seven nonmetro counties, the figure in Greenlee and Santa Cruz was higher than the U.S. nonmetro average; the lowest figure, in Apache County, was only 13 percent below the average.
