More Americans will spend more money on back to school items this year
Despite concerns about the economy and inflation, most Americans with school age children plan to spend more money getting them ready for school than they did a year ago.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of Americans who have children of elementary and secondary school age plan on spending more this year on school clothing and back-to-school supplies than they did a year ago. That compares to 40% at this time last year.
Twenty-nine percent think they will spend less this year, while 18% plan to spend about the same amount as they did a year ago.
