This is a list of countries by annual total personal income per capita for various years between 2001 and 2009. Unless otherwise noted, this data was collected by the World Salaries Group based on household budget surveys and converted to international dollars using the International Monetary Fund's implied purchasing power parity rates for each country in 2005. Unless otherwise noted, the income excludes owner-imputed rent and includes non-monetary income of self-supplied goods and services.

The US data was taken from the BEA ; noncash transfers and imputed rents were taken out
