Incomes in the U.S. grew 1% from fourth quarter 2015 to first quarter 2016, but that growth wasn't spread evenly across the states. Changes in personal incomes in every state ranged between 1.5% and -1.3%.
The Wall Street Journal broke down the numbers for all 50 states and District of Columbia. At the top was Washington, with a 1.5% income increase largely due to the influx of tech jobs and employee stock payouts. Maine, Michigan, Utah, and Massachusetts also saw strong years with growth at 1.3% or more. Maine and Michigan's boosts likely came from the growing construction and manufacturing industries, while Massachusetts was propped up by the healthcare industry.
