That’s more than double the 37.4 percent increase in per-capita income seen nationally, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reported.Per-capita personal income in North Dakota in 2011 was $45,747, an increase of $20,155 since 2000, when per-capital personal income was $25,592, the BEA reported. North Dakota’s average growth in per-capita personal income between 2001 and 2011 was 5.6 percent, while the national average was 2.9 percent."MP: North Dakota's growth in personal income per capita of 78.75% between 2000 and 2011 was the highest for any state, and just behind the 80.6% growth in per-capita income in Washington, D.C. What's the lesson here? Maybe that even an abundance of natural resources and oil prosperity can't generate increases in personal income like the federal government?
