The USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion recently released the annual report of expenditures on children by families for 2013. It’s a 31-page report with lots of details.
Child-rearing expenses vary considerably by household income. Families who have more, will pay more. The biggest jump in expenses comes with families who have more than $106,540 annual income.
There isn’t a big difference between families who have gross income of $61,530 and those who have less than $106,540 but more than $61,530.
