Idaho personal income increases

September 20, 2010

Total personal income in Idaho rose back over $50 billion this spring on an annualized basis, marking the first time personal income has been that high since summer 2008.

The nine-tenths of a percent increase from the winter quarter was driven by a substantial rise in the amount of transfer payments – Social Security, disability, pension, unemployment and other benefits – Idahoans received during the second quarter of this year. The increase also reflects a modest uptick in worker wages that was partially offset by a slight decline in business profits.
