Sources of personal income.

Personal income increased $51.1 billion (annual rate) in October, following an increase of $24.4 billion in September. The increases were boosted by a number of special factors. In October, these included large subsidy payments to farm proprietors, bonus payments to employees in the motor vehicle industry, restitution payments to Japanese-Americans, a rebound in rental income of persons from the effects of Hurricane Iniki, and retirement incentive payments to U.S. Postal Service employees. In September, the special factors included the effects of Hurricane Iniki and a rebound from the effects of Hurricane Andrew, which had reduced both form proprietors' income and rental income of persons in August, as well as subsidy payments to farm proprietors. Excluding these special factors, personal income increased $18.4 billion in October and $13.0 billion in September. [TABULAR DATA OMITTED]
