Sources of personal income.

Personal income rose $54.3 billion (annual rate) in February after falling $7.5 billion in January. The changes were affected by several special factors. The February change was boosted by farm subsidy payments and by a speedup of life insurance dividends to veterans (included in transfer payments). The January change was reduced by a decrease in farm subsidy payments and by December bonus payments to motor vehicle industry employees. The January change was boosted by cost-of-living adjustments to several Federal transfer payment programs, an increase in unemployment insurance benefit payments, and a pay rais for Federal Government employees. Excluding these special factors, personal income increased $42,5 billion in February; the effects of these factors on the January change were offsetting.
