Cooperative Education Student Employee Salary & Benefits Survey, 1992. Midwest Region.
Crusoe, John A., Comp.
The wages and benefits of students enrolled in college-level cooperative education programs throughout the Midwest are compared in this report. It describes the survey process, in which 119 college cooperative education program directors received 3,890 survey questionnaires and accompanying materials to forward to employers they had selected to participate in the survey. Of the 434 programs for which usable surveys were returned, 76 percent employed only bachelor's degree students, 3.5 percent employed only associate degree students, and 20.5 percent employed both bachelor's and associate degree students. The report presents results in 27 tables of data. Separate tables for bachelor's and associate degree programs are provided for each of the following: salaries by major, salaries by employer type, benefits by major, salaries for first and final work assignments by employer type, salaries by employer type paid to new community/junior college graduates, and benefits by employer type. Tables summarizing salaries and benefits for bachelor's degree students are included for Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Missouri, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, and Ohio. A regional versus state comparison of Midwest bachelor's-level salaries, summary of additional benefits provided by some employers, and list of colleges and universities supporting the survey are presented.
