Where can I get Per Capita Income data of states in the USA? Also which are the sources often used in econometric or macroeconomic analysis and how reliable are they?

    $\begingroup$ It's not clear but I think maybe you're asking for data for each state, like this? $\endgroup$ – Brian Z Jul 2 '20 at 13:35

BEA Person Income per capita for USA or states


St Louis FED can pull up this data for you. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/A792RC0A052NBEA

For your second question, it really depends on how you define personal income. A recommendation is to check the statistical agencies definition of personal income and see if it matches up with your analysis/ project.
