Analysis of Professional Fringe Benefits, 1978-79. OMNI Report.
Vater, James J.; Riddle, Richard A.
This report contains data collected from 275 Pennsylvania school districts for the 1978-79 school year. The data reflect policies and practices affecting fringe benefits for professional employees. The report is divided into three major sections. The first section presents comparative data for 30 variables on a statewide, size, and wealth basis. The second examines each variable on a regional basis. The third deals with the interaction of the control variables, district size and wealth, with the dependent variable, fringe benefits. The data concerning insurance coverage indicate that most school districts provide hospitalization and life insurance coverage. The percent of school districts providing dental coverage has increased. Visual coverage was provided by relatively few districts. Graduate study reimbursement tended to be reported by roughly three-fourths of the school districts. Leave usage has increased and varies by regions and by size and wealth of districts. (Author/LD)
