Thank you for helping the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) collect critical feedback regarding the National Compensation Survey (NCS). Your responses will be used to develop new products and improve our existing services. The NCS is a leading provider of comprehensive measures of employment cost trends, benefit coverage rates, and benefit plan provisions for the Nation. All of these data are available at no cost on the BLS website.
The index component of the NCS, the Employment Cost Index (ECI), measures changes in labor costs. Average hourly costs are presented in the Employer Costs for Employee Compensation (ECEC) data. Both of these products are located at http://www.bls.gov/ncs/ect/. The NCS data on detailed benefits data are known as the Employee Benefits Survey (EBS) and are available at http://www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/.
Even if you are not a frequent user of NCS products, any feedback you can provide would be appreciated. Your participation in this survey is voluntary. We estimate that it will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. We are collecting this information under OMB Number 1225-0059. Without this currently approved number, BLS could not conduct this survey (Expiration: November 30, 2012).
This survey is being administered by SurveyMonkey.com and resides on a server outside of the BLS domain. BLS cannot guarantee the protection of survey responses and advises against the inclusion of sensitive personal information in any response.
The survey questions are based on broad user experience and responses will be aggregated for analysis.
