Florida had the nation’s highest increase in income during the second quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said Monday.
Florida’s 1.5 percent jump tied Arizona for the top spot. Nebraska’s 0.7 percent decline was worst in the nation, and the national average increase was 1 percent.
Of the $11.7 billion increase in quarterly income, $6.8 billion came from dividends, interest and rent. Higher wages accounted for only $3.3 billion of the jump.
