  • Personal income decreased $221.8 billion (1.1 percent) in November.
  • Disposable personal income (DPI) decreased $218.0 billion (1.2 percent).
  • Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) decreased $63.3 billion (0.4 percent). 
  • Real DPI decreased 1.3 percent in November and Real PCE decreased 0.4 percent.
