Annual report finds 85 percent of employees at companies with more than 100 employees had access to retirement savings options—but only 53 percent of employees at smaller businesses, with fewer than 100 employees.

The National Compensation Survey (NCS) provides comprehensive measures of compensation cost trends and the coverage, costs, and provisions of employer-sponsored benefits in the United States. This bulletin presents 2018 estimates of the incidence and key provisions of selected employer-sponsored benefits for civilian workers by various worker and establishment characteristics. Workers in the civilian economy are defined in the survey as those employed in private industry and state and local government.
