Overview

The National Compensation Survey (NCS) provides comprehensive measures of compensation cost trends and the coverage, costs, and provisions of employer-sponsored benefits in the United States. This bulletin presents 2019 estimates of the incidence and key provisions of employer-sponsored benefits for civilian workers, private industry workers, as well as state and local government workers by worker and establishment characteristics.

These estimates are also accessible from the Benefits database as well as the archived NCS publications page.

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) staff designed the survey, collected and reviewed the survey data, and prepared survey estimates for publication. The survey could not have been conducted without the cooperation of the many private businesses and state and local government agencies and jurisdictions that provided benefits data. BLS thanks these respondents for their cooperation.

For more information on benefits estimates, contact NCS staff by phone at (202) 691–6199 or by email. Information is made available to sensory-impaired individuals upon request (Voice phone: (202) 691–5200; Federal Relay Service: 1 (800) 877–8339). Data requests also may be sent to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Office of Compensation and Working Conditions, 2 Massachusetts Avenue NE, Room 4160, Washington, DC 20212.
