Wisconsin's personal net income ranked 35th in U.S.

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - According to the latest government estimates released Tuesday, Wisconsin's personal net earnings have rebounded — but at an average annual rate that lags that of the nation and most of its Great Lakes peers.

Personal net income in the Badger State rose at an average annual rate of 3.2 percent starting from a base in 2009, the year that national wages bottomed out after the financial crisis on Wall Street threw the global economy into a tailspin.

That's according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Wisconsin's income growth ranked the state at No. 35 out of 50.
