Providence Ranked 5th for New England Metros: Personal Income Growth

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

 

Providence ranked 5th for New England metropolitan areas for "real personal income" from 2011 to 2012 based on data released by the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).

The BEA reported that real personal income, which is based on actual personal income but is adjusted for inflation from year to year and cost of living from state to state, rose 1.81 percent for the Providence metro region, outpacing the state's real personal income growth of 1.6%. The national average during the time frame was 2.3%.

"For the first time, Americans looking to move or take a job anywhere in the country can compare inflation-adjusted incomes across states and metropolitan areas to better understand how their personal income may be affected by a job change or move," said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker in a statement with the report's release.

"Businesses considering relocating or establishing new plants also now have a comprehensive and consistent measure of differences in the cost of living and the purchasing power of consumers nationwide. The Commerce Department’s 'Open for Business Agenda' prioritizes making our data more accessible and understandable so that it can continue powering both small and large businesses nationwide."

 

Overall, Rhode Island had a 1.81 percent change in real personal income growth.
