Per capita dividends

Dividends: This component of personal income consists of the payments in cash or other assets, excluding the corporation's own stock, made by corporations located in the United states or abroad to persons who are U.S. residents. It excludes that portion of dividends paid by regulated investment companies (mutual funds) related to capital gains distributions.

This measure of income is calculated as the dividend income of the residents of a given area divided by the resident population of the area. In computing per capita dividends, BEA uses the Census Bureau's annual midyear population estimates.
