Subsequent tables offer details of supplementary health insurance, long-term disability, sick leave entitlement, sick leave-benefits continuance, long-term disability-benefits continuance, life insurance, survivor benefits, dental plans, post-retirement benefits, vacation entitlement, sabbatical leave policies, housing loan (mortgage) policies, free tuition policies, parking policies, access to athletic facilities, and day care.

Part II, which surveys the same universities, presents data on pensions offered in 1991-92. Results are indicated by type of plan, eligibility, member contributions, university contributions, benefits, indexing, and standard options.
