Analysis of Child Welfare Services Expenditure Data and Child Day Care Expenditure Data: Phase II Report. B. Administrative Costs


Of the 40 States responding to both phases of this study, a total of 16 included State administrative costs in their reported expenditures. The definitions of administrative, or other non-direct costs was left to the States in the original VCIS reports and the same practice was followed for this study. For most States administrative costs are between 5 and 10 percent of reported costs.

Where States have not included administration in their reported costs, the project consultants have made estimates based upon the most appropriate percentage for that State, using an average of 5 percent in most cases or 7 percent if suggested by the state contact person.
