Below is a chart I created. This draws on the state-by-state child suport comparison study conducted by Dr. Jane Venohr with the Center for Policy Research. Dr. Venohr's data was published in a JAAML article, as referenced. I plotted the data and a regression curve to illustrate a general trend. From that trend, we can see that KS sets itself apart as one of the highest child support states in terms of its comparison to the norm. At 28% above the regression line, KS earns the bronze for the 3rd highest child support amount!
