BEARFACTS are narratives that summarize income data published by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). Each year the BEA publishes new personal income data for states, counties and metro areas. In their BEARFACT narratives, they compare and summarize the latest data and make comparisons over the last ten years. We link to these narrative summaries posted on the BEA web site.
Follow this link to the BEA web site for BEARFACTS and select, from the map, either state-, county- or metro-level data. Work through the geography heirarchy to get the area you want. If you have any questions about these summaries please contact BBER staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
