Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

Taxable retail sales in Arizona are generally limited to goods purchased in stores, while consumer spending continues to shift to untaxed services and to untaxed purchases made using the Internet, causing retail sales per $1,000 of personal income in Arizona to trend down. Thus, retail sales per $1,000 of personal income in Arizona have increased only in occasional years between 1985 and 2010, sometimes rising during recoveries from recessions and at the peak of the economic cycle. The gains from 2011 through 2014 were tied to the economic recovery and the depth of the last recession.
