  • net earnings made up 61 percent of personal income, compared to 61 percent in 2010;

  • dividends, interest and rent - income from investments - made up 18 percent of personal income, compared to 18 percent in 2010;

  • transfer payments made up 19 percent of personal income, compared to 21 percent in 2010.

Note: The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of inflation. Here we adjusted dollar values by the CPI-U, which is the most commonly used CPI. Using the CPI to put dollar values in “real” terms makes it easier to see “inflation-free” change over time. Our base year is 2015, which means all dollar values are in terms of 2015 dollars.
