Wyoming tops nation in long-term income growth standings

Though studies looking at short-term income growth put Wyoming squarely in the middle of the nation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, when you look at long-term growth, Wyoming dominates almost all other states.

Disposable income for the average Wyoming resident grew by 233.9 percent between 1986 and 2011, largely on the strength of the state’s coal, natural gas, and oils sectors.
