Please note: The information provided is a snapshot on the last day of the month indicated. Many of these numbers change every day as employees are hired, separate, and change their benefits enrollment, so the reports on this page provide estimates for the month. The information provided excludes non-classified higher education institutions, as individual data for those employees is not provided to the HR Analytics Unit. Please also note the month the data represents, as the table and the links may account for different time periods, due to processing time for data sources.
