Cost of Raising a Child.
Pennock, Jean L.
Estimates of the cost of rearing children have been developed by the Consumer and Food Economics Research Division, Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, from the 1960-61 Survey of Consumer Expenditures conducted jointly by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the USDA. Costs are at the levels of the USDA's economy, low-cost and moderate-cost food plans, for urban, rural nonfarm and farm families in the four principal regions of the U.S. Estimates cover the first 18 years of the child's life and are presented at 1960-61, 1969 and 1970 price levels. Costs for the average child in families of no more than 5 children are presented in "Cost of Raising a Child;" costs for the child in families of specified size in "Child Rearing Costs at Two Levels of Living" (limited to the North Central and Southern regions). More than one-half the document consists of tables. (Author/MK)
