Where Hoosiers Live to Make More Money

Per capita personal income is not created equally across all 92 Indiana counties. It never has been, but a look at the income impacts of the recession provides some interesting disparities.

The credit for the analysis goes to Rachel Justis of the Indiana Business Research Center at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. Check out her work here.

When per capita income ranges from nearly $49,000 in Boone County to less than $22,000 in LaGrange County, it’s a subject worthy of a closer look. A map provides information for all counties and charts detail those that experienced the greatest change and show a dramatic drop in counties that equal the U.S. per capita figure.
