A snapshot of state and local government benefits

Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, Program Perspectives, Vol. 3 no. 1, 2011

State and local government employees typically have access to a number of major benefits in their compensation packages, including health care, retirement and savings, and paid leave. In many cases, State employees have similar or more generous benefits when compared with local government workers, but differences in occupational employment can have an impact on some benefits.

This issue of Program Perspectives reviews occupational distribution between State and local government sectors and examines data on benefit availability and participation in each section.
