Connecticut Ranked 34th in Income Growth

The state saw modest income growth in the first half of 2012.


Connecticut’s growth in personal income for the first half of 2012 came in at the low end of the New England region and 34th in the nation.  

The total income rose .9 percent in Connecticut; the same was Vermont and Maine. Massachusetts had the highest growth in New England at 1.2 percent, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

The total personal income in Connecticut is more than all of New England -- not counting Massachusetts -- combined at $207 billion.

In the U.S., the fastest-growing income was in oil-rich North Dakota, which saw a 2.1 percent increase.

An organization recently looked at the total median income of males and females and found that women make 78 cents for every dollar a man makes.

North Dakota leads the country in increased income because of their commitment to growth of natural resources, yet the "energy policy" on a national level is limited to shutting down coal plants and investing hundreds of billions in taxpayer money in green energy companies that have gone under. BTW, excellent job Gov. Malloy. We are one of the least desirable places to retire, to open a business and our growth of income is in the bottom 50% in the country. Otherwise, you are doing a great job. Your term can't end fast enough.
