Custodial Mothers and Fathers and Their Child Support: 2015

Written by:
Report Number P60-262

Original Release: January 2018
Re-released: February 2020


This report focuses on the child support income that custodial parents reported receiving from noncustodial parents living elsewhere and other types of support, such as health insurance and noncash assistance. The most recent data in this report are from the Child Support Supplement (CSS) to the April 2016 Current Population Survey (CPS). It provides demographic information about custodial parents as of 2016, as well as child support and other income or program data for the 2015 calendar year. The report also shows trends over the past 22 years by comparing data collected from the 1994 April CPS and subsequent biennial surveys. New population controls based on the results from the 2010 Census were used beginning with the April 2012 CPS-CSS.
