A few of the numbers:
That's how much a family that makes between $57,600 and $99,730 can expect to spend on a kid from the time they were born in 2010 until they graduate high school.
Percentage of the child-raising cost that goes to housing (should this count? Aren't you paying for a home of some sort whether the kid is there or not?)
Percentage of the total cost of raising a child that goes to child care and education. That's compared to a mere two percent in 1960, by the way.
Does $226,920 seem too low to you? Too high?
