College and University Employee Benefits Cost Survey.
Standardized information on expenditures by 605 colleges and universities on employee benefits for 1979 are provided. This benefit cost survey offers two principal measurements of college expenditures for each included benefits category: expenditures as a percentage of total gross payroll and expenditures as dollars per employee per year. Information is presented on the following: distribution of employer benefits expenditures; types of expenditures; expenditures by institutional category, region, and institutional size; pension and insurance expenditures; payroll data; and 1977-79 comparative data on employee benefit expenditures. A summary of the findings is included that indicates: (1) by type of institution, universities reported highest average expenditures for all benefits combined, followed by liberal arts colleges, and other four-year institutions; (2) all but three of the 605 respondents reported employer expenditures for one or more types of pension plans; (3) for life insurance plans, 89 percent of respondents reported an expenditure; 99 percent reported health insurance expenditures; (4) a little over a third of responding institutions reported on payments for time not worked--sick leave, vacations, holidays, etc.; and (5) as dollars per employee per year, average employer expenditures for all benefits combined were $2,434 in 1977 and $2,797 in 1979.
