McGraw-Hill/Irwin © 2002 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., All Rights Reserved. Taxpayer Spending on Children $389 Billion on K-12 education $146 to $197 Billion on Welfare (for many programs you do not qualify unless you have children) –TANF –SSI/EITC* –Food Stamps –Housing Subsidies –Medicaid* *These are the exceptions.

McGraw-Hill/Irwin © 2002 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., All Rights Reserved. Parental Spending on Children Between $6,080 and $13,800 is spent by parents per child depending on family living standards. Using the concept of present value, the total cost of raising a child to age 18, (excluding birth, daycare, and college) is between $88,000 and $175,000. Other costs –Birth Costs –Opportunity Costs –Daycare –College
McGraw-Hill/Irwin © 2002 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., All Rights Reserved. Opportunity Costs When families have children they lose earning potential. This happens more often and to a greater degree with women. Economists count as a cost of having children the income that would have been earned by parents that stay-at-home. Taking opportunity costs into account can double the cost per child.

Saving for College Present Value: the amount you would have to set aside today to pay for college for a child 18 years from their birth.

Hypothetical Example Suppose there are two alternatives –State U currently costs $10,000 per year –Private U currently costs $25,000 per year Assume tuition is rising at 4% annually. Assume you have a mutual fund that nets 8% annually. In 19 years State U will cost $20,000 and Private U will cost $50,000. If you start at the childs birth you will need to save $1,850 per year to pay for State U and $4,625 to pay for Private U.
