EMSI now gives users the ability to break out industry data by supplements. As far as we know, no other data source lets you get to this data — at least not this easily.
What are supplements?
Supplements to wages and salaries apply to covered (wage & salary) jobs only. They consist of:
- Employer contributions for employee pension and insurance funds: Contributions consisting of employer payments (including payments-in-kind) to private pension and profit-sharing plans, publicly administered government employee retirement plans, private group health and life insurance plans, privately administered workers’ compensation plans, and supplemental unemployment benefit plans.
- Employer contributions for government social insurance.
This number is derived from the BEA State and Local Personal Income reports (www.bea.gov/regional/).
As you can see from the table below (taken from the Seattle MSA), breaking out supplements allows you to see how much of the industry earnings is explained by pensions, profit sharing, retirement plans and private health insurance.
