Overall personal income in the county dropped 1.1% in 2008 and 2009 -- a better performance than the national decline of 1.8%. San Diego's lesser decline largely resulted from a $1.9 billion increase in federal payrolls, $1.5 billion of which was a rise in payroll of uniformed military, says Cunningham.
