A new report says raising girls, although expensive, can be a better financial deal in the long run.

The reason is daughters are less likely than sons to need financial help from mom and dad when they grow up.

The survey found after the age of 18, daughters are less likely to move back home than sons.

Among those who do move back home, 41% of adult men say they get financial help from mom and dad, whereas, only 31% of daughters say they get help.

The study also found daughters are more likely to provide care for aging parents.
