BRIEFLY

Personal income rose 1.1% in the second quarter.

October 30, 1985

The residents of Wyoming and Indiana enjoyed the biggest gains while residents of Delaware, Alaska and Montana suffered declines, the Commerce Department said. The biggest force propelling wages upward was a strong increase in construction payrolls, which offset sluggish activity in the manufacturing sector, the department said. The second-quarter gain followed an even larger 1.7% increase in non-farm personal income during the first three months of the year. Wyoming led the country with a 3.1% income jump, followed by gains of 2% in Indiana, 1.8% in Kansas, 1.7% in Arizona and 1.6% in Florida.
