  • Taos Economic Indicators

    The Taos Economic Reports that were done for the Taos County Chamber of Commerce and are listed on this page have become difficult to create on a timely manner due to the reporting of economic data by State and other agencies.

    To make economic data available to our Members and the community we have compiled some interesting reports and links. These reports and links are based on the same basic information from Bureau of Business and Economic Research at the University of New Mexico (BBER) as our reports prior to and including the 2nd Quarter 2014.

  • Personal Income in New Mexico

    Personal Income by Major Component Personal income is the before-tax income received by people from all sources and is calculated as the sum of net earnings by place of residence, property income, and personal current transfer receipts (transfer payments). Net earnings is earnings by place of work - the sum of wages and salaries, supplements to wages and salaries, and proprietors’ income - less contributions for government social insurance, plus an adjustment to convert earnings by place of work to a place-of-residence basis.

    The amount of goods and services an individual can purchase is dependent on their personal income. Per capita personal income is thus a measure of individual economic well-being and can be derived by dividing total personal income by total population.

  • Taos NM Census Data - 2010

    This data is a profile of general population and household characteristics - 2010 Census


  • 2009 - 2013 Selected Economic Characteristics

    These 2009-2013 reports were generated by The American Community Survey (ACS). ACS is an ongoing survey that provides vital information on a yearly basis about our nation and its people. Information from the survey generates data that help determine how more than $400 billion in federal and state funds are distributed each year. Through the ACS, we know more about jobs and occupations, educational attainment, veterans, whether people own or rent their home, and other topics. Public officials, planners, and entrepreneurs use this information to assess the past and plan the future. When you respond to the ACS, you are doing your part to help your community plan hospitals and schools, support school lunch programs, improve emergency services, build bridges, and inform businesses looking to add jobs and expand to new markets, and more.
