Per capita income is the total income of the country divided by its total population. At the state level, it is the total income of the state divided by its total population. The following table gives the per capita income for three states of India for the 2015-2016 time period.

State Per Capita income for 2015-2016
(in Rupees)
Maharashtra 1,80,596
Kerala 1,55,516
Bihar 34,168

From the above table, it is evident that Bihar has the least per capita income between the three states.
