I realize this discussion began with a comment on family income, but
unless things have changed recently, the inequality of family incomes in
the US is a good deal less than the inequality of all incomes. The use
of family incomes is an old trick that tends to remove the lower end.
Poorer people (adults, that is) are less likely to be in families.
Figures for Blacks are particularly skewed when one focuses on families.
