 How "Poor" are America's Poor?
The Census Bureau counts as "poor" anyone with "cash income" less than the official poverty threshold, which was $12,675 for a family of four in 1989.
While the Census Bureau poverty survey estimated that the average annual income of the poorest 20 percent of U.S. households in 1986 was $5,904, the Bureau's Consumer Expenditure Survey showed that these same households were spending an average of $11,477 that year.
The Census Bureau not only counts the number of poor persons in the U.S.; it also calculates the "poverty gap." This is the total amount of government assistance that would be needed to raise the income of all poor Americans up to the poverty income threshold.

As census officials, one of the most important functions that the Defendants perform is to determine the current "apportionment population." The apportionment population is the "total resident population (citizens and non-citizens) of the 50 states." See U.S. Census Bureau, http://www.census.gov/population/www/censusdata/apportionment.html.
