Introduction
Lincoln County vs. Nevada
Lincoln County:
2019 TPI = $204,014K
2019 Percent of State = 0.1%
Nevada:
2019 TPI = $157,583,713K
2019 Percent of U.S. = 0.8%
The annual total personal incomes (TPI) estimates compiled by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, (BEA) are among the most comprehensive, consistent, comparable and timely measures of economic activity available statewide and at the national levels. Personal income estimates are also the best available local level indicator of general purchasing power, and are therefore central to tracking and comparing county patterns of economic growth and change.
The following graphs highlight trends in the pattern of growth and change in the total personal income of Lincoln County and Nevada with comparison to the nation. The data used are those compiled by the Regional Income and Product Divisions of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce. The 2012 constant dollar (real) estimates of total personal income reported in the tables and portrayed graphically below are determined using the Implicit Price Deflator for Personal Consumption.
Data Definition:
Personal income is the income received by persons from participation in production, plus transfer receipts from government and business, plus government interest (which is treated like a transfer receipt). It is defined as the sum of wages and salaries, supplements to wages and salaries, proprietors' income with inventory valuation and capital consumption adjustments, rental income of persons with capital consumption adjustment, personal dividend income, personal interest income, and personal current transfer receipts, less contributions for government social insurance. Because the personal income of an area represents the income that is received by, or on behalf of, all the persons who live in that area, and because the estimates of some components of personal income (wages and salaries, supplements to wages and salaries, and contributions for government social insurance) are made on a place-of-work basis, state personal income includes an adjustment for residence. The residence adjustment represents the net flow of compensation (less contributions for government social insurance) of interstate commuters.

Figure 1.
Figure 1 depicts Lincoln County's annual total personal income over 1970-2019 in current and constant (2012) dollars. Constant dollar measurements remove the effects of inflation. They allow for comparison of changes in the real purchasing power of Lincoln County over time.
When measured in current dollars, Lincoln County's total personal income increased 2,124.1%, from $9M in 1970 to $204M in 2019. When measured in constant 2012 dollars to adjust for inflation, it advanced 324.2%, from $44M in 1970 to $186M in 2019.

Figure 2.
Figure 2 tracks Lincoln County's and Nevada's annual real total personal income for the period 1969-2019 to illustrate real total personal income patterns over time. During this 51-year period, Lincoln County's real total personal income rose from $42M in 1969 to $186M in 2019, for a net gain of $144M, or 346.7%. In comparison, Nevada's real total personal income increased from $11,384M in 1969 to $143,452M in 2019, for a net advance of $132,068M, or 1,160.1%.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 shows Lincoln County's real total personal income growth in a broader context by offering direct comparisons across time with Nevada, the United States. The growth indices shown here express each region's real total personal income in 1969 as a base figure of 100, and the real total personal incomes in later years as a percentage of the 1969 base figure. This method allows for more direct comparison of differences in real total personal income growth between regions that may differ vastly in size.
Lincoln County's overall real total personal income growth was 346.7% over 1969-2019 trailed Nevada's increase of 1,160.1%, and outpaced the United States' increase of 327.0%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of contrasting the total personal income growth of Lincoln County is to trace its individual percentage contributions to Nevada's statewide total personal income over time, as shown in Figure 4. A rising share means a region's total personal income grew faster, or declined less, than Nevada's total personal income, while a declining share shows it grew more slowly.
In 1969, Lincoln County's total personal income totaled 0.37% of Nevada's total personal income, while in 2019 it comprised 0.13% thereby yielding a -0.24% share-shift.

Figure 5.
Figure 5 displays the short-run pattern of Lincoln County's real total personal income growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2019. The average annual percent change for the entire 50-year period is also traced on this chart to provide a benchmark for gauging periods of relative high--and relative low--growth against the backdrop of the long-term average.
On average, Lincoln County's real total personal income grew at an annual rate of 3.16% over 1970-2019. The county posted its highest growth in 1980 (19.20%) and recorded its lowest growth in 1983 (-6.86%). In 2019, Lincoln County's real total personal income grew by 3.51%

Figure 6.
Over the past five decades some counties have experienced extreme swings in growth, and often such swings have tended to coincide with the decades themselves. Figure 6 again depicts the annual percent change in Lincoln County's real total personal income since 1970, but this time they are overlayed with average growth rates for the decade of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010-2019.
During the 1970s, Lincoln County's annual real total personal income growth rate averaged 4.63%. It averaged 5.54% throughout the 1980s, -0.40% in the 1990s, 3.29% throughout the 2000s, and 2.71% thus far this decade (2010 to 2019).

Figure 7.
Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for Lincoln County noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for Nevada and the nation. As the chart reveals, Lincoln County's average annual real total personal income growth recorded under Nevada's average in the 1970s (4.63% vs. 7.08%), outpaced Nevada's average in the 1980s (5.54% vs. 5.08%), posted below Nevada's average in the 1990s (-0.40% vs. 7.63%), registered above Nevada's average throughout the 2000s (3.29% vs. 3.09%), and posted below Nevada's average over the 10 year period of the last decade, 2010-2019 (2.71% vs. 3.41%).
Finally, relative to nationwide real total personal income growth trends, Lincoln County exceeded the nation in the 1970s (4.63% vs. 3.50%), outperformed the nation over the 1980s (5.54% vs. 3.17%), recorded underneath the nation in the 1990s (-0.40% vs. 3.29%), exceeded the nation over the 2000s (3.29% vs. 2.05%), and fell below the nation over 2010-2019 (2.71% vs. 2.81%).
