About This Report: Conducted by ADP Research Institute, a specialized group within ADP, this study is based on 2012 actual, aggregated and anonymous employee-level data from approximately 300 ADP health and benefits clients. All states and major industries are covered, as well as employee gender, age, and marital status. Each of the companies in the study has 1,000 or more employees, including both full-time and part-time workers. Due to the small dataset population of union employees, only non-union employees are considered in this analysis.
