Income, Spending Here Top National Average NEW YORK—(Special to Uio Courier News)—What, is the average income of Blyiheville families? How much is available to them for spending, after taxes?

Answers to these questions, much sought after for commercial reasons, are contained in the new copyrighted survey of buying power in the entire United states, prepared by Sales Management.

The figures, it Is pointed out. are arithmetical averages, obtained Dy dividing total income by tola! number of families. The better earnings locally led lo bigger spending.

A measure of the purchasing ability of eacli city and county, as compared with the nation, is given in the survey by a "miality of market" index. This takes into consideration income, sates, population and other [ factors. For Blytheville, the index rating is placed at 110, or 10 per cent above the national average.
