This report just came out by the US. Dept. of Agriculture - August 2009 (the study was done in 2008 apparently). It covers 2 parent and single parent households.

Child-rearing expense patterns of single-parent households with a before-tax income less than $56,870 were only 7 percent lower than those of husband-wife households in the same income group. According to the report MOST single-parent households are in this income group.


Read the full report.

What do you think of this report? Any comments on your expenses for the year...or up to age 17 for those who have parented longer?

Do you think it is accurate? not accurate?
