Housing is the single largest cost, averaging 30 percent of the total, followed by child care and education at 18 percent, and food at 16 percent. For the purposes of the data, "middle income" parents were defined as having an annual income between $61,530 and $106,540 - the middle third of the income distribution for a two-parent family with children. Child-raising costs have risen faster than inflation since the report was first compiled in 1960, when a middle-income family could have expected to spend $25,230 to raise a child.
