Alaska permanent fund benefits

These benefits are the disbursements of investment income to the residents of Alaska from the Alaska Permanent Fund. The fund, which is derived from oil revenues, pays a portion of its net investment income to every resident.

The state estimate is the amount that is paid and that is reported by the state. The state estimate is allocated to the boroughs and census areas in proportion to the household population.
