NI, PI , DI: After the explanation of the process of arriving at the value of NI, two further operations need consideration: these make it possible to arrive at disposable income (DI) and personal income value (PI). These are other important national aggregates in the system of income accounting. Let’s begin with personal income ( PI ) value.
