Even if reported income accurately identified the poor, the division of total income into quintile
shares, ranging from the lowest fifth of all households to the highest, would be misleading.
Translated into money terms, that means for every $1 earned by someone in the bottom quintile
, a top quintile
person earns more than $13.
Because these consumer units may have expenditure levels that are more typical of higher income consumers, the losses they report affect both the average income and the average expenditures of the lower income classes and can be seen in the income quintile
and income level tables.
However, the fourth quintile
of black families showed relatively little change in their income position, and the bottom quintile
showed a continuing decline in its income level.
