Total Personal Income Growth and Change, 1969-2017
Introduction
Wheeler County:
2017 TPI = $46,700K
2017 Percent of State = 0.0%
Oregon:

2017 Percent of State = 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 Wheeler 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 Chain-Weight Implicit Price Deflator for Personal Consumption.
Data Definition:
Personal Income is the income that is received by all persons from all sources. It is calculated as the sum of wage and salary disbursements, 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. The personal income of an area is the income that is received by, or on behalf of, all the individuals who live in the area; therefore, the estimates of personal income are presented by the place of residence of the income recipients.

Figure 2.
Figure 2 traces Wheeler County's and Oregon's annual real total personal income for the period 1969-2017 to illustrate real total personal income patterns over time. During this 49-year period, Wheeler County's real total personal income rose from $33M in 1969 to $44M in 2017, for a net gain of $12M, or 35.4%. In comparison, Oregon's real total personal income advanced from $38,882M in 1969 to $188,005M in 2017, for a net advance of $149,123M, or 383.5%.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 portrays Wheeler 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.
Wheeler County's overall real total personal income growth was 35.4% over 1969-2017 trailed Oregon's increase of 383.5%, and fell below the United States' increase of 301.2%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of comparing the total personal income growth of Wheeler County is to compare 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, Wheeler County's total personal income totaled 0.08% of Oregon's total personal income, while in 2017 it equated to 0.02% thereby yielding a -0.06% share-shift.

Figure 5.
Figure 5 highlights the short-run pattern of Wheeler County's real total personal income growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2017.

Figure 6.
Over the past four 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 Wheeler 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, and 2010-2017.
During the 1970s, Wheeler County's annual real total personal income growth rate averaged 0.62%. It averaged -0.52% during the 1980s, 1.87% in the 1990s, 0.48% throughout the 2000s, and 1.69% thus far this decade (2010 to 2017).

Figure 7.
Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for Wheeler County noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for Oregon and the nation. As the chart reveals, Wheeler County's average annual real total personal income growth fell below Oregon's average during the 1970s (0.62% vs. 5.30%), recorded under Oregon's average in the 1980s (-0.52% vs. 1.97%), amounted to less than Oregon's average in the 1990s (1.87% vs. 4.22%), recorded under Oregon's average throughout the 2000s (0.48% vs. 1.90%), and fell below Oregon's average over the 8 year period of the last decade, 2010-2017 (1.69% vs. 3.48%).
Finally, relative to nationwide real total personal income growth trends, Wheeler County fell under the nation throughout the 1970s (0.62% vs. 3.48%), posted below the nation in the 1980s (-0.52% vs. 3.18%), trailed the nation over the 1990s (1.87% vs. 3.28%), lagged the nation during the 2000s (0.48% vs. 2.07%), and trailed the nation over 2010-2017 (1.69% vs. 2.72%).
