About This Survey:

Employee Benefits Survey 2018 received responses from single employer (including corporations), multiemployer and public employer plans in the databases of the International Foundation and ISCEBS. In some instances survey design filters leading to tables with smaller response counts (particularly in public sector data) may restrict the extent to which findings can be generalized to a particular population. The 677 responding human resources and benefits professionals, trustees, administrators and industry experts represent a wide base of U.S. organizations from nearly 20 different industries and ranging in size from fewer than 50 to more than 10,000 employees.
