        This news release presents revised estimates of wages and salaries, personal taxes, and
contributions for government social insurance for October through December 2006 (fourth quarter).
These estimates reflect newly available fourth-quarter wage and salary tabulations from the quarterly
census of employment and wages from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

                                Wages and salaries

        Private wage and salary disbursements decreased $30.7 billion in April, in contrast to an
increase of $42.0 billion in March.  Private wages and salaries had been boosted by $50.0 billion at
an annual rate in January, in February, and in March to reflect unusually large bonus payments and
the exercise of stock options.   These types of irregular payments are not accounted for in the
primary monthly source data for wages and salaries.  This is an adjustment to the months of the first
quarter that has not been carried forward in the estimates of wage and salary disbursements for
subsequent months.  Goods-producing industries' payrolls increased $4.7 billion in April, compared
with an increase of $10.0 billion in March; manufacturing payrolls increased $3.1 billion, compared
with an increase of $5.3 billion.  Services-producing industries' payrolls decreased $35.3 billion, in
contrast to an increase of $32.0 billion.  Government wage and salary disbursements increased $3.8
billion, compared with an increase of $2.9 billion.

                                Other personal income

        Supplements to wages and salaries increased $1.6 billion in April, compared with an increase
of $5.2 billion in March.

        Proprietors' income decreased $1.4 billion in April, in contrast to an increase of $5.7 billion in
March.  Farm proprietors' income decreased $4.5 billion, in contrast to an increase of $3.4 billion.
Nonfarm proprietors' income increased $3.1 billion, compared with an increase of $2.3 billion.

        Personal income receipts of assets (personal interest income plus personal dividend income)
increased $7.7 billion in April, compared with an increase of $19.6 billion in March.  Personal
current transfer receipts increased $5.8 billion, compared with an increase of $14.4 billion.

        Contributions for government social insurance -- a subtraction in calculating personal income --
decreased $3.7 billion in April, in contrast to an increase of $6.0 billion in March.


                                Personal current taxes and disposable personal income

        Personal current taxes increased $2.6 billion in April, compared with an increase of $14.2
billion in March.  Disposable personal income (DPI) -- personal income less personal current taxes
-- decreased $9.7 billion, or 0.1 percent, in April, in contrast to an increase of $71.7 billion, or 0.7
percent, in March.

                                Personal outlays and personal saving

        Personal outlays -- PCE, personal interest payments, and personal current transfer payments
increased $55.2 billion in April, compared with an increase of $44.2 billion in March.  PCE
increased $52.0 billion, compared with an increase of $42.4 billion.

        Personal saving -- DPI less personal outlays -- was a negative $132.8 billion in April, compared
with a negative $67.8 billion in March.  Personal saving as a percentage of disposable personal
income was a negative 1.3 percent in April, compared with a negative 0.7 percent in March.
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 -- decreased 0.4 percent in April, in contrast
to an increase of 0.3 percent in March.

        Real PCE -- PCE adjusted to remove price changes -- increased 0.2 percent in April, compared
with an increase of less than 0.1 percent in March.  Purchases of durable goods increased 0.1
percent, compared with an increase of 0.6 percent.  Purchases of nondurable goods decreased 0.4
percent, in contrast to an increase of 0.3 percent.  Purchases of services increased 0.6 percent, in
contrast to a decrease of 0.2 percent.

        The price index for PCE increased 0.3 percent in April, compared with an increase of 0.4
percent in March.  Prices, excluding food and energy, increased 0.1 percent, compared with an
increase of less than 0.1 percent.

                                Revisions

        Estimates for personal income and DPI have been revised for October through March;
estimates for PCE have been revised for January through March.  Changes in personal income,
current-dollar and chained (2000) dollar DPI, and current-dollar and chained (2000) dollar PCE for
February and March are shown below.

        For October through December, the revisions to wages and salaries reflected the incorporation
of newly available BLS tabulations of fourth-quarter private wages and salaries from the quarterly
census of employment and wages.  Wages and salaries were revised up for all three months.
Revisions to personal current taxes and to contributions for government social insurance reflected
the revisions to wages and salaries.
