"Measuring Income" Lies From the NYSlimes

Buried deep, where only JustOneMinute found it:

Research led by the Cornell economist Richard V. Burkhauser, for instance, sought to measure the economic health of middle-class households including income, taxes, transfer programs and benefits like health insurance. It found that from 1979 to 2007, median income grew by about 18.2 percent over all rather than by 3.2 percent counting income alone.

Of course, that's not headline-worthy.
