7. Income Taxes
Our effective income tax rate decreased to 25.9% for the second quarter of 2016 from 33.3% for the second quarter of 2015 primarily driven by lower U.S. income as compared to income earned in foreign jurisdictions. Our effective income tax rate decreased to 30.4% for the first six months of 2016 from 33.8% for the first six months of 2015 primarily due to lower U.S. income as compared to income earned in foreign jurisdictions, which is partially offset by non-recurring true-ups recorded in the first quarter of 2016.
