Per Capita Personal Income
Santa Clara & San Mateo Counties, San Francisco, California, and the United States
Silicon Valley Institute for Regional Studies
Per capita values are calculated using personal income data from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis and population figures from the U.S. Census Bureau mid-year population estimates for 2010-2015 available as of March 2016. Silicon Valley data are for Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Personal income estimates for 2001 forward reflect the results of the comprehensive revision to the national income and product accounts (NIPAs) released in July 2013, which creates a temporary break in BEA’s time series for earlier years. All per capita income values have been inflation-adjusted and are reported in 2015 dollars, using the Bay Area consumer price index for all urban consumers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the Silicon Valley and San Francisco data, the California consumer price index for all urban consumers from the California Department of Finance for California data, and the U.S. city average consumer price index for all urban consumers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for U.S. data.
Personal income is defined as the sum of wage and salary disbursements (including stock options), supplements to wages and salaries, proprietors’ income, dividends, interest, and rent, and personal current transfer receipts, less contributions for government social insurance.
