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.1 The most recent data in this report are from the Child Support Supplement (CSS) to the April 2012 Current Population Survey (CPS). The report provides demo-graphic information about custodial parents as of 2012, as well as about child support and other income or program data for the 2011 calendar year.2 It also shows trends over the past 18 years by comparing data collected from the 1994 April CPS and subsequent biennial surveys. (See the text box “Limitations of the Data” for additional survey information.) The estimates from the April 2012 CPS-CSS use new population controls based on the results from the 2010 Census.
