Support Providers: 2013

Written by:
Report Number P70BR-158


The financial support paid to people living outside the household can be an important source of income for the millions of people who receive that support. Likewise, the support paid to other people can represent a sizable proportion of the provider’s income and wealth. Many of the financial payments occur as a result of legal obligations to support the providers’ children or ex-spouses in the form of child support and alimony, while other payments are to parents, adult children, other relatives, and nonrelatives. This report uses data from the 2014 panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), a national longitudinal survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, to look at the monetary support paid to people living outside the household for the 2013 calendar year.
