Infographic: Employer Size, Workforce Age, Industry, and State Influence Annual Health Care Premiums

The ADP Research Institute, a specialized group within ADP, recently conducted its inaugural study of health benefits on approximately 300 U.S. -based client organizations, each with more than 1,000 employees. Representing multiple industries across all 50 states, the study’s key demographic data includes employee full-time/part-time status, marital status, dependent status, and eligibility for benefits. Because the Affordable Care Act (ACA) may result in re-classification of some part-time employees as full-time, the study data and insights may help employers as they take action to help manage the ACA’s effect on their financial and human capital resources.

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.
