I believe that those numbers are produced by residents of D.C. Have you been there lately? Average nice home in the suburbs is at least twice the price of Midwest homes.
Obviously, DC'ers think anyone below 400% actually live in poverty. Of course, if you don't have a mortgage, or car payments, a couple can actually live on $62k a year.
