snapshot: change in per person income, '07-'10

Last week's chart looked at the average income per resident across the state. This looks at the percent change in income between 2007 and 2010, as people struggled to recover from the recession. Some communities that had the highest incomes in 2007 showed the largest drops by 2010, including Weston, Dover and Sherborn -- although all three still had high six-figure averages. On the other hand, some low-income communities, such as Revere, registered large percent gains, although the overall pay was still low, relative to the rest of the state.
