Comparative Trends Analysis:
Total Personal Income Growth and Change, 1969-2022
Introduction
Calhoun County vs. Iowa
Calhoun County:
2022 TPI = $625,123K
2022 Percent of State = 0.32%
Iowa:
2022 TPI = $192,742,369K
2022 Percent of U.S. = 0.88%
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 Calhoun County and Iowa 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 2017 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 Calhoun County's annual total personal income over 1970-2022 in current and constant (2017) dollars. Constant dollar measurements remove the effects of inflation. They allow for comparison of changes in the real purchasing power of Calhoun County over time.
When measured in current dollars, Calhoun County's total personal income increased 1,033.04%, from $55M in 1970 to $625M in 2022. When measured in constant 2017 dollars to adjust for inflation, it advanced 93.00%, from $279M in 1970 to $539M in 2022.

Figure 2.
Figure 2 traces Calhoun County's and Iowa's annual real total personal income for the period 1969-2022 to illustrate real total personal income patterns over time. During this 54-year period, Calhoun County's real total personal income rose from $278M in 1969 to $539M in 2022, for a net gain of $260M, or 93.48%. In comparison, Iowa's real total personal income advanced from $54,939M in 1969 to $166,096M in 2022, for a net advance of $111,157M, or 202.33%.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 portrays Calhoun County's real total personal income growth in a broader context by offering direct comparisons across time with Iowa, 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.
Calhoun County's overall real total personal income growth was 93.48% over 1969-2022 trailed Iowa's increase of 202.33%, and fell below the United States' increase of 348.76%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of highlighting the total personal income growth of Calhoun County is to compare its individual percentage contributions to Iowa'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 Iowa's total personal income, while a declining share shows it grew more slowly.
In 1969, Calhoun County's total personal income comprised 0.51% of Iowa's total personal income, while in 2022 it totaled 0.32% thereby yielding a -0.18% share-shift.

Figure 5.
Figure 5 displays the short-run pattern of Calhoun County's real total personal income growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2022. The average annual percent change for the entire 53-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, Calhoun County's real total personal income grew at an annual rate of 1.62% over 1970-2022. The county posted its highest growth in 1994 (22.12%) and recorded its lowest growth in 1976 (-14.02%). In 2022, Calhoun County's real total personal income declined by -0.21%

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 traces the annual percent change in Calhoun County's real total personal income since 1970, but this time they are overlayed with average growth rates for the decade of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020-2022.
During the 1970s, Calhoun County's annual real total personal income growth rate averaged 3.22%. It averaged -0.80% during the 1980s, 1.04% throughout the 1990s, 2.23% during the 2000s, 1.08% in the 2010s, 6.07% thus far this decade (2020-2022).

Figure 7.
Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for Calhoun County noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for Iowa and the nation. As the chart reveals, Calhoun County's average annual real total personal income growth fell below Iowa's average throughout the 1970s (3.22% vs. 3.28%), trailed Iowa's average during the 1980s (-0.80% vs. 0.87%), amounted to less than Iowa's average in the 1990s (1.04% vs. 2.56%), recorded above Iowa's average in the 2000s (2.23% vs. 2.03%), trailed Iowa's average during the 2010s (1.08% vs. 1.87%), and led Iowa's average over the 3 year period of the current decade, 2020-2022 (6.07% vs. 2.90%).
Finally, relative to nationwide real total personal income growth trends, Calhoun County trailed the nation during the 1970s (3.22% vs. 3.50%), fell under the nation over the 1980s (-0.80% vs. 3.16%), posted below the nation over the 1990s (1.04% vs. 3.27%), exceeded the nation during the 2000s (2.23% vs. 2.06%), fell under the nation throughout the 2010s (1.08% vs. 2.72%), and exceeded the nation over 2020-2022 (6.07% vs. 2.10%).
