Sample Benefits Data and Methodology

Benefits survey packets were distributed to all participants in January 2010. Data is effective February 1, 2010. Follow-up contacts were made by HRAM representatives to verify any unusual data on the survey.

Data Handling Assumptions & Conventions

In the course of preparing the data, certain assumptions, adjustments, and conventional treatments were necessary in order to maintain the integrity of the resulting information. The following procedures and assumptions were used in the preparation of the data in the survey:

  • Data that fell outside the norm for the position or question asked was reviewed with the submitting participant and verified. The resulting data was corrected or otherwise deleted.
  • Where a range of data was given by the participant (i.e. $5.00 to $35.00 or 5% to 35%, etc.) the average of the range of data was calculated and used in the final survey results, or otherwise deleted.
  • Questions that have 3 or more responses from participants were calculated. Where there were less than 3 pieces of data, results were not reported or otherwise reported as Insufficient Data ("-").

Every reasonable effort was made to maintain data integrity and provide accurate and useful information.

Note: The scope of this survey is extremely broad. The survey encompasses organizations having fewer than 20 employees to those with over 5,000 employees, operating locally, nationally and internationally.

Benefits Survey reports data based on company size.
