GODWIN United Press International WASHINGTON The Department culated the personal income of the farm population from all sources in 1962 at $20.5 billion. This is $450 million over the personal income in 1961 and up about $1 billion from 1960. The department said the rise since 1960 was due to an increase in the personal income from farm sources. The personal income from non-farm sources went down slightly from 1960 to 1962. Farm residents in recent years have received about 65 per cent of their total personal income from farm sources, the department said. This percentage varies, of course, for farms in different sales groups. The personal income of farm persons in 1962 was $1,436 per capita—$940 from farm sources and $496 from non-farm sources, the department said. These figures were record high. Even so, the personal income of the farm population in 1962 was only 59 per cent of the $2,445 per capita personal income of the non-farm population.
