Introduction
Coos County:
2017 TPI = $1,324,403K
2017 Percent of State = 1.7%
New Hampshire:
2017 TPI = $80,122,027K
2017 Percent of State = 0.5%
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 Coos County and New Hampshire 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 Chain-Weight Implicit Price Deflator for Personal Consumption.
Data Definition:
Personal Income is the income that is received by all persons from all sources. It is calculated as the sum of wage and salary disbursements, 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. The personal income of an area is the income that is received by, or on behalf of, all the individuals who live in the area; therefore, the estimates of personal income are presented by the place of residence of the income recipients.

Figure 1.
Figure 1 depicts Coos County's annual total personal income over 1969-2017 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 Coos County over time.
When measured in current dollars, Coos County's total personal income increased 1,151.7%, from $106M in 1969 to $1,324M in 2017. When measured in constant 2012 dollars to adjust for inflation, it advanced 136.2%, from $529M in 1969 to $1,249M in 2017.

Figure 2.
Figure 2 traces Coos County's and New Hampshire's annual real total personal income for the period 1969-2017 to illustrate real total personal income patterns over time. During this 49-year period, Coos County's real total personal income rose from $529M in 1969 to $1,249M in 2017, for a net gain of $720M, or 136.2%. In comparison, New Hampshire's real total personal income increased from $13,930M in 1969 to $75,535M in 2017, for a net gain of $61,605M, or 442.2%.

Figure 3.
Figure 3 shows Coos County's real total personal income growth in a broader context by offering direct comparisons across time with New Hampshire, 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.
Coos County's overall real total personal income growth was 136.2% over 1969-2017 trailed New Hampshire's increase of 442.2%, and fell below the United States' increase of 301.2%.

Figure 4.
Another interesting and insightful way of comparing the total personal income growth of Coos County is to trace its individual percentage contributions to New Hampshire'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 New Hampshire's total personal income, while a declining share shows it grew more slowly.
In 1969, Coos County's total personal income totaled 3.8% of New Hampshire's total personal income, while in 2017 it equated to 1.7% thereby yielding a -2.1% share-shift.

Annual Percent Change, 1970-2017
Figure 5.
Figure 5 highlights the short-run pattern of Coos County's real total personal income growth by tracking the year-to-year percent change over 1970-2017. The average annual percent change for the entire 48-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, Coos County's real total personal income grew at an annual rate of 1.85% over 1970-2017. The county posted its highest growth in 1998 (10.26%) and posted its lowest growth in 1990 (-5.65%). In 2017, Coos County's real total personal income grew by 1.37%

Figure 6.
Over the past four decades some counties have experienced extreme swings in growth, and often such swings have tended to coincide with the decades themselves. Figure 6 again shows the annual percent change in Coos 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 2010-2017.
During the 1970s, Coos County's annual real total personal income growth rate averaged 3.06%. It averaged 3.12% in the 1980s, 1.16% throughout the 1990s, 1.10% during the 2000s, and 0.54% thus far this decade (2010 to 2017).

Figure 7.
Figure 7 compares the decade average growth rates for Coos County noted in the previous graph with the corresponding decade averages for New Hampshire and the nation. As the chart reveals, Coos County's average annual real total personal income growth lagged New Hampshire's average throughout the 1970s (3.06% vs. 4.60%), fell below New Hampshire's average in the 1980s (3.12% vs. 5.69%), lagged New Hampshire's average during the 1990s (1.16% vs. 3.12%), recorded under New Hampshire's average in the 2000s (1.10% vs. 2.22%), and posted below New Hampshire's average over the 8 year period of the last decade, 2010-2017 (0.54% vs. 2.24%).
Finally, relative to nationwide real total personal income growth trends, Coos County fell below the nation over the 1970s (3.06% vs. 3.48%), fell under the nation throughout the 1980s (3.12% vs. 3.18%), posted below the nation during the 1990s (1.16% vs. 3.28%), lagged the nation throughout the 2000s (1.10% vs. 2.07%), and lagged the nation over 2010-2017 (0.54% vs. 2.72%).
