• Capitol Media Services

The personal income of Arizonans slid more last year in this state than almost everywhere else in the nation.

New figures from the Bureau of Economic Analysis show the average per capita income of Arizonans last year dropped, to $32,935.

The fact of the slide is not surprising. The recession resulted in a decline nationwide of 2.8 percent.

But the drop in Arizona was 4.1 percent.
