Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

but I'm focusing on the cost out of the government coffers for children.  If you know, how much is the government paying for your child, which I would guess would be mainly education and health care.

And how would that compare to the average pensioner?  and I guess his costs would be the pension itself, and then the average spent on healthcare for he/she?

My guess is that the pensioner is much more expensive, particularly because the average pensioner's use of healthcare is, I think, far higher than the average child.  At least that is what all the studies I have seen show.
