Percent of Workers In Private Industry With Access to Selected Employee Benefite: 2006

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 634):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629
1144 1227 1231

This dataset consists of a table of 45 rows and 19 columns.

As of March. Based on National Compensation Survey (NCS). The NCS benefits survey obtained data from 10,376 private industry establishments of all sizes, representing over 105 million workers; see Appendix III. See also Tables 149 and 150. For explanation of benefits, see source
