In 2019, the Central-West recorded an income of R$1,619, above the national average (R$1,439). The region's CDR was 1, on a scale of zero to 1. The Northeast had an income of R$890 and a CDR of 0.62. The North had an income of R$883 and a CDR of 0.61.

The coefficients are calculated based on regional income figures compared to the national average. For the calculation, earnings from work and other sources of all residents were considered, including those classified as pensioners, domestic workers and domesticworkers' relatives.

The values were obtained from the gross earnings from work and other sources received in the reference month of the survey, with the accrued information from the first interviews of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters of the Continuous PNAD of 2019. The results were calculated limiting the CDR to the maximum of 1.0, as established by the decree.

According to Decree 9,291/2018, the coefficients will be applied to determine the financial charges levied on the financing of credit operations with resources from the Northeast Financing Fund (FNE), the North Financing Fund (FNO) and the Central-West Financing Fund (FCO).
