    These are lists of the lowest-income counties in the United States, based on measures of per capita income and median household income.

    50 counties/parishes with lowest per capita personal income

    Two common measurements of the average annual income of individuals in the United States are: per capita income (PCI) and per capital personal income (PCPI). Per capita personal income is the more comprehensive of the two measures, and thus PCPI for an individual, county, or state will be higher than PCI.[1] The following table is a listing of counties by PCPI.
