Factoid of the Day Monday, July 27, 2015
A survey of parents of undergraduate college students in the U.S., conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs for Sallie Mae, revealed that families spent an average of $24,164 per child for the 2014-2015 academic year, up 16% from the previous school year, according to Reuters. Families with incomes exceeding $100,000 increased spending by 25%. It was the first increase in outlays since 2010. One of the reasons cited was that parents were less worried about losing their jobs. The percentage of families who reported borrowing money to help pay for college rose from 35% in the 2013-2014 academic year to 38%. Borrowing peaked at 46% in 2010.
