WEST LEADS US IN INCOME GROWTH

The far western United States outpaced the rest of the nation in nonfarm personal income growth in the second quarter of 1989, the Commerce Department says. The growth rate there was 1.2 percentage point above the US average of 8.4 percent, according to the department's Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Nevada, with its tourism and mining industries, continued to lead the country in income growth, up 12.8 percent, while Wyoming remained mired at the bottom of the list with a 3.6 percent growth rate.
