                                PERSONAL INCOME AND OUTLAYS:  FEBRUARY 2007

        Personal income increased $65.4 billion, or 0.6 percent, and disposable personal income (DPI)
increased $53.8 billion, or 0.5 percent, in February, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) increased $55.5 billion, or 0.6 percent.  In January,
personal income increased $110.5 billion, or 1.0 percent, DPI increased $74.2 billion, or 0.8 percent,
and PCE increased $50.2 billion, or 0.5 percent, based on revised estimates.

                                Compensation of employees

        Private wage and salary disbursements increased $19.3 billion in February, compared with an
increase of $64.9 billion in January.  The January change in private wages and salaries reflected an
adjustment of $50.0 billion (at an annual rate) for unusually large bonus payments and the exercise
of stock options, based on data from state governments and from other sources.  These types of
irregular payments are not accounted for in the primary monthly source data for wages and salaries.
(The February change to private wages and salaries was not affected because the $50 billion
adjustment was made to each month of the first quarter.)  Goods-producing industries' payrolls
increased $1.6 billion, compared with an increase of $2.1 billion; manufacturing payrolls increased
$0.7 billion, in contrast to a decrease of $0.5 billion.  Services-producing industries' payrolls
increased $17.7 billion, compared with an increase of $62.8 billion.

        Government wage and salary disbursements increased $4.5 billion in February, compared with
an increase of $7.6 billion in January.  Pay raises for federal civilian personnel added $0.6 billion to
the change in government payrolls in February; pay raises for federal civilian and military personnel
had added $4.6 billion to government payrolls in January.

        Employer contributions for employee pension and insurance funds increased $2.5 billion in
February, compared with an increase of $6.8 billion in January.

        Employer contributions for government social insurance increased $1.5 billion in February,
compared with an increase of $8.2 billion in January.  The January increase reflected an increase in
the tax rate paid by employers to state unemployment insurance funds and an increase in the social
security taxable wage base (from $94,200 to $97,500); together, these changes added $3.0 billion to
the January change.  (Changes in employer contributions for government social insurance do not
affect personal income, because employer contributions for government social insurance are also
included in total contributions for government social insurance, which is a subtraction in the
calculation of personal income.)

                                Other personal income

        Proprietors' income increased $11.1 billion in February, compared with an increase of $0.4
billion in January.  Farm proprietors' income increased $3.3 billion, the same increase as in January.
Nonfarm proprietors' income increased $7.8 billion in February, in contrast to a decrease of $2.8
billion in January.

        Rental income of persons increased $0.1 billion in February, in contrast to a decrease of $0.5
billion in January.  Personal income receipts on assets (personal interest income plus personal
dividend income) increased $16.9 billion, compared with an increase of $16.3 billion.

        Personal current transfer receipts increased $13.2 billion in February, compared with an
increase of $26.2 billion in January.  The January change in current transfer receipts reflected 3.3-
percent cost-of-living adjustments to social security benefits and to several other federal transfer
payment programs; together, these changes added $21.2 billion to the January change.  The January
change in current transfer receipts was reduced by lump-sum social security benefits payments,
which had added $6.7 billion to December benefit payments; these benefit payments resulted from a
recalculation of the earnings base underlying the benefits for recent retirees.

        Contributions for government social insurance -- a subtraction in calculating personal income --
increased $3.7 billion in February, compared with an increase of $19.4 billion in January.  The
January increase reflected increases in both employer and personal contributions for government
social insurance.  As noted above, employer contributions were boosted $3.0 billion in January by
increases in unemployment-insurance rates and in the social security taxable wage base.  The
January increase in personal contributions for government social insurance reflected an increase in
the monthly premium paid by participants in the supplementary medical insurance program
(Medicare part B) and the increase in the social security taxable wage base; these changes added
$5.3 billion to January personal contributions.

                                Personal current taxes and disposable personal income

        Personal current taxes increased $11.7 billion in February, compared with an increase of $36.2
billion in January.  Indexation provisions of current tax law reduced federal withheld income taxes
by $4.0 billion in January.  Federal net nonwithheld income taxes (payments of estimated taxes plus
final settlements less refunds) boosted the January increase by $11.1 billion, based on federal budget
projections for 2007.

        Disposable personal income (DPI) -- personal income less personal current taxes -- increased
$53.8 billion, or 0.5 percent, in February, compared with an increase of $74.2 billion, or 0.8 percent,
in January.

                                Personal outlays and personal saving

        Personal outlays -- PCE, personal interest payments, and personal current transfer payments
increased $58.3 billion in February, compared with an increase of $52.7 billion in January.  PCE
increased $55.5 billion, compared with an increase of $50.2 billion.

        Personal saving -- DPI less personal outlays -- was a negative $119.6 billion in February,
compared with a negative $115.1 billion in January.  Personal saving as a percentage of disposable
personal income was a negative 1.2 percent in February, the same as in January.  Negative personal
saving reflects personal outlays that exceed disposable personal income.  Saving from current
income may be near zero or negative when outlays are financed by borrowing (including borrowing
financed through credit cards or home equity loans), by selling investments or other assets, or by
using savings from previous periods.  For more information, see the FAQs on "Personal Saving" on
BEA's Web site.  For a comparison of personal saving in BEA's national income and product
accounts with personal saving in the Federal Reserve Board's flow of funds accounts and data on
changes in net worth (which help finance consumption), go to http://www.bea.gov/bea/dn/nipaweb/Nipa-Frb.asp.

                                Real DPI and real PCE

        Real DPI -- DPI adjusted to remove price changes -- increased 0.1 percent in February,
compared with an increase of 0.6 percent in January.

        Real PCE -- PCE adjusted to remove price changes -- increased 0.2 percent in February,
compared with an increase of 0.3 percent in January.  Purchases of durable goods decreased 0.1
percent, in contrast to an increase of 1.1 percent.  Purchases of nondurable goods decreased 0.4
percent, in contrast to an increase of 0.1 percent.  Purchases of services increased 0.5 percent,
compared with an increase of 0.3 percent.

        PCE prices -- The price index for PCE increased 0.4 percent in February, compared with an
increase of 0.2 percent in January.  Prices, excluding food and energy, increased 0.3 percent,
compared with an increase of 0.2 percent.  This acceleration primarily reflects a sharp acceleration
in the producer price index for offices of physicians.

                                Revisions

        Estimates have been revised for October through January.  Changes in personal income,
current-dollar and chained (2000) dollar DPI, and current-dollar and chained (2000) dollar PCE for
December and January -- revised and as published in last month's release -- are shown below.
