Information on the comprehensive revision of Regional Personal Income statistics

On May 30, 2014, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released revised state annual personal income statistics for 1929 through 2000, and revised state quarterly statistics for the first quarter of 1948 through the fourth quarter of 2000; along with revised local area personal income statistics from 1969 to 2000. These data complete the most recent comprehensive (or benchmark) revision of BEA's personal income accounts.

Comprehensive revisions differ from annual revisions primarily because of the scope of the changes. For a complete discussion of the different types of changes made during a comprehensive revision see "Comprehensive Revision of State Personal Income" (PDF) Survey of Current Business (November 2013), page 52.
