Selecting the Employment Cost Index Survey Sample as a Subsample of the National Compensation Survey

Abstract

The National Compensation Survey (NCS) is a new statistical program that will both replace the existing Occupational Compensation Survey (OCS) program and integrate it with the Employment Cost Index (ECI) and the Employee Benefit Survey (EBS), creating one comprehensive survey program. The OCS program publishes locality and national occupational wage data used by the President’s Pay Agent and private sector compensation specialists, among others. The ECI publishes national indexes which track quarterly and annual changes in employers’ labor costs and also cost level information annually on the cost per hour worked of each component of compensation. The EBS publishes annually incidence and detailed provisions of selected employee benefit plans.
