Kids Finances: Allowances and Chores


According to a survey reported in Pediatrics for Parents newsletter, the average 8 and 9 year old's allowance is $3.75 per week. For 10 and 11 year olds, the average is $4.25, for 12 and 13 year olds $6.66, and for 14 year olds $9.45. Of the 1,000 children in the survey, only half received an allowance.

There is no gender gap in allowances - boys and girls in each group received the same amount per week. Girls were generally happier with the amount of their allowance while most boys thought they should receive more.

Other interesting facts about this survey:

  • One quarter of the children saved part of their allowance
  • Snacks, toys, and sporting gear were the most common items the allowance was spent on
  • One in ten of the children gave some money to charity

Almost all the children had chores to do. Seventy percent had to clean their room. The next most frequent chore was caring for a pet. There was a definite gender difference in the type of chores boys and girls do.
