Complete Description:USDA's annual report on Expenditures on Children by Families, also known as "Cost of Raising a Child," provides estimates for the cost of food, housing, childcare, education and other child-rearing expenses for children from birth to age 18. Many state governments use this annual report, first issued in 1960, as a resource in determining child support and foster care payments. American families can use this information to aid in planning for financial events.
