Kids’ Share 2016: Report on Federal Expenditures on Children Through 2015 and Future Projections

Kids Share 2016 report cover

Kids’ Share 2016 is the tenth annual analysis of federal spending and tax investments in children and families. The report finds the children’s share of the budget is projected to be vastly outweighed by interest that will be paid on the national debt. Kids’ Share 2016 projects that absent any policy change, children’s share of the budget will continue to decline. Kids’ Share 2016 offers these detailed analysis on the federal budget, and more. The report was commissioned by First Focus and produced by the Urban Institute with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
