Total Personal Income Growth and Change, 1969-2021
Introduction
Harney County vs. Oregon
Harney County:
2021 TPI = $373,121K
2021 Percent of State = 0.1%
Oregon:
2021 TPI = $261,546,508K
2021 Percent of U.S. = 1.2%
The annual total personal incomes (TPI) estimates compiled by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, (BEA) are among the most comprehensive, consistent, comparable and timely measures of economic activity available statewide and at the national levels. Personal income estimates are also the best available local level indicator of general purchasing power, and are therefore central to tracking and comparing county patterns of economic growth and change.
The following graphs highlight trends in the pattern of growth and change in the total personal income of Harney County and Oregon with comparison to the nation. The data used are those compiled by the Regional Income and Product Divisions of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce. The 2012 constant dollar (real) estimates of total personal income reported in the tables and portrayed graphically below are determined using the Implicit Price Deflator for Personal Consumption.
Data Definition:
Personal income is the income received by persons from participation in production, plus transfer receipts from government and business, plus government interest (which is treated like a transfer receipt). It is defined as the sum of wages and salaries, supplements to wages and salaries, proprietors' income with inventory valuation and capital consumption adjustments, rental income of persons with capital consumption adjustment, personal dividend income, personal interest income, and personal current transfer receipts, less contributions for government social insurance. Because the personal income of an area represents the income that is received by, or on behalf of, all the persons who live in that area, and because the estimates of some components of personal income (wages and salaries, supplements to wages and salaries, and contributions for government social insurance) are made on a place-of-work basis, state personal income includes an adjustment for residence. The residence adjustment represents the net flow of compensation (less contributions for government social insurance) of interstate commuters.

Figure 1.
Figure 1 depicts Harney County's annual total personal income over 1970-2021 in current and constant (2012) dollars. Constant dollar measurements remove the effects of inflation. They allow for comparison of changes in the real purchasing power of Harney County over time.
When measured in current dollars, Harney County's total personal income increased 1,156.4%, from $30M in 1970 to $373M in 2021. When measured in constant 2012 dollars to adjust for inflation, it advanced 127.2%, from $142M in 1970 to $323M in 2021.

Figure 2.
Figure 2 tracks Harney County's and Oregon's annual real total personal income for the period 1969-2021 to illustrate real total personal income patterns over time. During this 53-year period, Harney County's real total personal income rose from $137M in 1969 to $323M in 2021, for a net gain of $186M, or 135.4%. In comparison, Oregon's real total personal income increased from $39,208M in 1969 to $226,210M in 2021, for a net advance of $187,002M, or 476.9%.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 portrays Harney County's real total personal income growth in a broader context by offering direct comparisons across time with Oregon, the United States. The growth indices shown here express each region's real total personal income in 1969 as a base figure of 100, and the real total personal incomes in later years as a percentage of the 1969 base figure. This method allows for more direct comparison of differences in real total personal income growth between regions that may differ vastly in size.
Harney County's overall real total personal income growth was 135.4% over 1969-2021 trailed Oregon's increase of 476.9%, and fell below the United States' increase of 364.9%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of contrasting the total personal income growth of Harney County is to trace its individual percentage contributions to Oregon's statewide total personal income over time, as shown in Figure 4. A rising share means a region's total personal income grew faster, or declined less, than Oregon's total personal income, while a declining share shows it grew more slowly.
In 1969, Harney County's total personal income comprised 0.35% of Oregon's total personal income, while in 2021 it comprised 0.14% thereby yielding a -0.21% share-shift.

Figure 5.
Figure 5 highlights the short-run pattern of Harney County's real total personal income growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2021. The average annual percent change for the entire 52-year period is also traced on this chart to provide a benchmark for gauging periods of relative high--and relative low--growth against the backdrop of the long-term average.
On average, Harney County's real total personal income grew at an annual rate of 1.79% over 1970-2021. The county recorded its highest growth in 1976 (13.03%) and posted its lowest growth in 1981 (-12.47%). In 2021, Harney County's real total personal income grew by 6.61%

Figure 6.
Over the past five decades some counties have experienced extreme swings in growth, and often such swings have tended to coincide with the decades themselves. Figure 6 again illustrates the annual percent change in Harney County's real total personal income since 1970, but this time they are displayed with average growth rates for the decade of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020-2021.
During the 1970s, Harney County's annual real total personal income growth rate averaged 3.90%. It averaged -1.07% in the 1980s, 1.30% in the 1990s, 1.00% throughout the 2000s, 2.54% throughout the 2010s, 8.22% thus far this decade (2020-2021).

Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for Harney County noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for Oregon and the nation. As the chart reveals, Harney County's average annual real total personal income growth trailed Oregon's average in the 1970s (3.90% vs. 5.30%), fell below Oregon's average in the 1980s (-1.07% vs. 1.96%), recorded under Oregon's average throughout the 1990s (1.30% vs. 4.10%), recorded under Oregon's average throughout the 2000s (1.00% vs. 1.92%), recorded under Oregon's average in the 2010s (2.54% vs. 3.54%), and registered above Oregon's average over the 2 year period of the current decade, 2020-2021 (8.22% vs. 5.79%).
