Quick displacement question...

I have a quick question re: weight specs of boats. When finding the TOTAL weight of a boat, do you add the displacement and the ballast, or is the displacement the TOTAL weight? Might be a silly question, but I have no idea. I am looking at a '78 Ranger 22, and the displacement is 2189 with a ballast of 900. Went out on it today and loved it.
