Interesting new census data.  The evidence does not suggest that the nineties were a boon for everyone. 
 
"The bureau's statistics for the 50 states and the District of Columbia show that 9.2 percent of families were deemed poor in 2000, a slight improvement from 10 percent in 1989. ( a family of four was said to be living in poverty if its income was less than $16,954 [which means the number would be quite a bit larger than 10% if we considered poverty to be less than $25,000 for a family of four, still a small income])

Men's incomes fell in 26 states. Nationally, their median incomes meaning half earned less and half more fell 2.3 percent." [this is quite a fascinating statistic for boom years!]
