Throughout the Southside Planning District (SPDC), per capita personal income levels continue to remain below state and national levels, as do median household income levels.  According to American Community Survey data between 2009 - 2013, SPDC’s median income is just over half of Virginia’s average and right at two-thirds of the national average. While Southern Virginia has lower income and wages, it also has a lower cost of living that increases local spending power.
