Not to belabour the point, but the three "poor" suburbs (lowest of the five median income bins in Ile de France INSEE study) account for 26% of the total population of Paris.

If you add in the 10th and 13th (which are in the middle income bin) then 38% of the population of Paris proper are roughly median income or below based on the entire Ile de France level. This is far from the stereotype of "only rich, upper middle class and tourists".

As the INSEE study emphasizes, the problem is that the there is a big separation between the poorer areas and richer areas that seems to be increasing. But this is true across Ile-de-France as well as in Paris.
