Marylanders apparently have suffered more from the recession than the rest of the country has, as personal income in the state has suffered more than in the nation as a whole, according to figures from the Maryland Office of Planning.Personal income in Maryland has declined in every quarter since the end of 1990 when compared with the same quarter a year earlier, the figures showed. The last time Maryland posted an increase in personal income was in the summer of 1990, and even that increase was smaller than the gain recorded by the nation as a whole.
