BOX._______
The estimates released today reflect the results of the annual revision of the national income and
product accounts (NIPAs), beginning with estimates for January 2009.  Annual revisions, which are usually
released in July, incorporate source data that are more complete, more detailed, and otherwise more
reliable than those previously available.  This release includes the revised monthly estimates of
personal income and personal outlays and provides an overview of the results of the revision.
The August 2012 Survey of Current Business will contain NIPA tables and an article describing the
revisions.  The revised estimates will be available on BEA’s Web site at www.bea.gov by August 3, 2012.

Month-to-month dollar changes are differences between these published estimates.  Month-to-month percent
changes are calculated from unrounded data and are not annualized.  “Real” estimates are in chained (2005) dollars.

                                Revisions of the Personal Income and Outlays Estimates for 2009 - 2011

Revised estimates, which begin with 2009, reflect the results of the annual revision of the national income
and product accounts.  These revisions, usually made each July, incorporate newly available and more
comprehensive source data, as well as improved estimation methodologies.  In this annual revision, the notable
revisions primarily reflect the incorporation of newly available and revised source data.

Revisions to annual estimates of personal income and outlays for 2009-2011 are shown in table 12.
Revised and previously published monthly estimates of personal income, DPI, PCE, personal saving as a percentage
of DPI, real DPI, and real PCE are shown in table 13; revised and previously published annual and quarterly
estimates are shown in table 14.

Personal income was revised down for all 3 years:  $63.2 billion, or 0.5 percent, for 2009; $51.6 billion,
or 0.4 percent, for 2010; and $43.9 billion, or 0.3 percent, for 2011.  For 2009, downward revisions to
personal dividend income, to rental income of persons, and to personal interest income were partly offset
by an upward revision to nonfarm proprietors’ income.  For 2010, a downward revision to personal dividend
income was partly offset by upward revisions to nonfarm proprietors’ income and to personal interest income.
For 2011, downward revisions to personal dividend income, to government social benefits to persons, and to
farm proprietors’ income were partly offset by upward revisions to nonfarm proprietors’ income, to supplements
to wages and salaries, and to personal interest income.

Disposable personal income (DPI) was revised down for all 3 years:  $66.4 billion, or 0.6 percent, for 2009;
$52.6 billion, or 0.5 percent, for 2010; and $44.2 billion, or 0.4 percent, for 2011.  Personal current taxes
was revised up for all 3 years:  $3.2 billion for 2009, $0.9 billion for 2010, and $0.3 billion for 2011.
The percent change from the preceding year in real DPI was revised down from a decrease of 2.3 percent to a
decrease of 2.8 percent for 2009, was unrevised at 1.8 percent for 2010, and was revised up from an increase
of 1.2 percent to an increase of 1.3 percent for 2011.

Personal outlays was revised down $22.0 billion for 2009, was revised down $26.5 billion for 2010, and was
revised up $4.8 billion for 2011.  For 2009 and 2010, downward revisions to PCE accounted for most of the
revisions to personal outlays.  For 2011, upward revisions to personal interest payments and to PCE were
partly offset by a downward revision to personal current transfer payments to government.

The personal saving rate was revised down for all 3 years:  from 5.1 percent to 4.7 percent for 2009,
from 5.3 percent to 5.1 percent for 2010, and from 4.6 percent to 4.2 percent for 2011.

NOTE.  BEA acknowledges the special efforts by the Bureau of Labor Statistics with the assistance of 19 state
employment offices in providing preliminary data for the first quarter of 2012 from the quarterly census of
employment and wages.  Wage and salary data from the state employment offices of California, Colorado, Connecticut,
Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York,
North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah were provided.  These data should greatly improve the
estimates of wages and salaries.
