2019 County Per Capita Personal Income
Missouri’s per capita income in 2019 was $48,656. Recently released data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis show there were six counties in Missouri with a higher per capita income than the state average: St. Louis, Platte, St. Charles, Holt, Carroll, and Clay. Use this data to help understand county and regional differences in payroll and earnings, spending power, and general economic trends in local-level economies around the state.
New Statewide Employer Survey Released
A state’s employers and workforce are economic drivers of its success, and Missouri has over 200,000 payroll employers who provide jobs for 2.73 million people. In the Missouri Workforce 2020 Employer Survey, a representative sample of businesses provided insight into workforce trends, barriers to expanding employment, and future staffing, training, and support needs. Employers also provided valuable feedback on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Missouri businesses. Compare the results from the 2019 survey, as well as differences between metro and non-metro areas in the full report.
