The Average Miamian Makes $36,357 Per Year
That $36,357 figure represents a small decrease of about 0.8 percent from the 2008 figure of $36,956. Though that is up from 2007, when the PCPI was $35,927.
Overall, Miami-Dade ranked 19th in the state for PCPI.
So which counties are making the most money per person? Dade borders the top two.
Monroe county, which includes the Keys, made $60,173 per person and had the highest level of PCPI in the state. Collier County, our neighbor to the west, came in second with a PCPI of $60,049. Though both of those counties saw their levels fall by 3.8 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively. It's the first year in recent memory when Collier fell from the top spot.
Broward residents made $41,185 on average, with a fall of 4.2 percent since 2008. Palm Beach residents had a PCPI of $57,461 (fourth in the state). Though they fell by 4.9 percent, the steepest decrease in the state.
Not every county in Florida saw a decrease. Hamilton county saw the biggest bounce, with an increase of 5.3 percent, but is still the third poorest in the state.
Lafayette County came in dead last with a PCPI of $19,309.
