I can't link to a graph, but the low-income groups won't receive less. They'll get the most.

Everyone who earned $75,000 or less = gets a check for $1,200.
Those who earned between 75-99k = get a check for a lesser amount.
Those who earned over $99,000 = get nothing.

The low-income groups get the most. Of course, $1,200 doesn't go far to begin with. Ideally it should have been double or triple that - I hope Congress approves a second or third such round of payments in the summer if the recession persists.
