Kids Share 2013: Federal Expenditures on Children in 2012 and Future Projections, a seventh annual report, looks comprehensively at federal spending and taxes on children. Federal outlays on children fell by 7 percent between 2011 and 2012, which is the greatest single-year drop since the early 1980s. While most of this decline is explained by the exhaustion of recession-related funds provided by ARRA, broader budgetary forces will continue to restrict spending on children over the next ten years. Over the next decade, outlays on children are projected to decline from 10 percent to 8 percent of the federal budget.
