Residents of Pickens County are the leaders when it comes to per capita personal income across the Northwest Georgia region according to a recent report of statistics gathered by the US Department of Commerce (the Bureau of Economic Analysis)..

Pickens County is also the lone county in the 15-county area where per capita personal income exceeded the state figure. New data for 2017, produced by the Bureau of Economic Analysis within the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, indicates that the average Pickens County resident was paid $45,717 in 2017, over $2,000 per resident higher than the state average of $43,270.

Bartow county residents ranked second in the region with $37,362 and Whitfield county residents ranked third at $37,351.

Per capita personal income, the total of all personal income divided by population, is considered by government economists as a useful tool for making comparison of the level of personal income.

The national figure for 2017 was $50,392.

Murray County was at the bottom of the reginal income list at $29,243. Chatooga was the only other county in the region below $30,000 at $29,621.
