Restoration of Previously Eliminated Local Area Personal Income Statistics

The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) will restore a portion of the statistical detail to its Local Area Personal Income (LAPI) program that had been eliminated due to sequestration and reduced funding levels in FY 2013. In early May, BEA will release for 2001-2012 (1) local area employment statistics; (2) local area industry detail for compensation and earnings for 108 industries; (3) detail on farm income and expenses; (4) and partially restored detail on personal current transfer receipts. Improved production efficiency, in part, will allow for the restoration of these statistics. For further information about the statistics, contact the Regional Income Division at 202-606-5360, or e-mail reis@bea.gov
