Abstract

Little is known on the financial well-being of families raising children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Family financial well-being has important impacts on the development of children with ASD. The study uses a 2019 survey collected from Chinese families raising a child with ASD (N = 3064) to examine their financial well-being and its association with health expenditures for children. Extensive control variables (i.e., demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of children, respondents, and their families) are adjusted in analyses. Findings suggest that the amount of health expenditures is negatively associated with respondents’ perception of their financial status. The significance of health expenditures disappears after household material hardship is adjusted. Health expenditures affect financial well-being mainly through resource competitions against family needs.
