County Compensation By Industry, 2008

The Bureau of Economic Analysis has released its study of County Compensation by Industry for 2008. They conclude that “compensation grew in over 80 percent of the 3,112 counties in the U.S., as the average annual compensation per job in the U.S. grew by 2.6 percent . . . . Total compensation of U.S. workers grew 2.3 percent in 2008, as net job losses partially offset compensation growth. Inflation measured by the national price index for personal consumption expenditures, grew 3.3 percent.”

Two Kansas counties, Johnson and Sedgwick, appear on the BEA list of 168 most populous counties. For Sedgwick, total compensation reached $14,643,000,000 in 2008, an increase of 3.9 percent from 2007. The average compensation per job in Sedgwick County in 2008 was $52,518.
