Per capita net earnings

Net earnings by place of residence is earnings by place of work-the sum of wages and salaries, supplements to wages and salaries, and proprietors' income-less contributions for government social insurance, plus an adjustment to convert earnings by place of work to a place of residence basis.

This measure of income is calculated as the net earnings of the residents of a given area divided by the resident population of the area. In computing per capita net earnings, BEA uses the Census Bureau's annual midyear population estimates.
