How much does it cost to raise a child? College may no longer be the biggest expense.

Parents spend a lot of time worrying about how they’ll afford college tuition for their kids someday, but a pair of recent surveys show exorbitant college-like costs actually come much earlier in life.

In more than half the states, childcare costs more than in-state public college tuition, according to lending platform Then, comes the price you pay for independent kids. Teen car ownership now also costs more than in-state tuition at a public university, an analysis by car app Jerry shows.

Everyone already knows raising a child is expensive, but it’s getting even pricier. After two years of elevated inflation, families are feeling pinched more than ever.

Nationwide, families spend 19% of their annual income on child-rearing expenses, online lending marketplace LendingTree said.
