North Carolina Rank Among States in Per Capita Income of Citizens

Record #:
Although per capita income in North Carolina has risen substantially since 1929, the state is still low on the rank of state income. As 44th in the country, North Carolina's per capita income only reaches $1,520 for 1951. Factors contributing to the lower income of southern states such as North Carolina are the agricultural economy and certain larger population groups such as children.
