Personal Income Data

These measures of Personal Income are available from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). Per capita personal income is the total personal income in an area divided by the total population of an area, resulting in an average income illustration.

The measures are shown for the Lake Charles MSA and each of the parishes in our 5 parish SWLA area.

All measures are in thousands of dollars. (Real measures are in thousands of 2012 dollars)

For more information, please contract the Drew CBEA.
