To find the per capita income of an area, use the following formula:

pci = i/P

Where:

pci = per capita income

i = total personal income

P = total population

Example of per capita income calculation:

In 2006, the United States had a total personal income of $10,968,393,000,000. The total population of the U.S. in 2006 was approximately 300,000,000. Therefore, the per capita income of the United States in 2006 is:

pci = $10,968,393,000,000 / 300,000,000

pci = $36,561
