The full survey, along with an audio interview with co-author Gary Claxton, is available online at http://www.kff.org/insurance/7672. The Health Affairs article based on the survey is available to subscribers at http://content.healthaffairs.org/cgi/content/abstract/26/5/1407 or via the free link at the Kaiser Web site above.

This survey is a joint project of the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust. A research team at Kaiser and HRET conducted and analyzed the survey, led by Gary Claxton, vice president and director of the Health Care Marketplace Project at Kaiser, and Jon Gabel, senior fellow at the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago. NORC works on the project under contract to HRET.

METHODOLOGY

The Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research and Educational Trust 2007 Annual Employer Health Benefits Survey (Kaiser/HRET) reports findings from a telephone survey of 3,078 randomly selected public and private employers, including 1,997 who responded to the full survey and an additional 1,081 who responded to one question about whether or not they provide health coverage to their employees. Kaiser/HRET drew its sample from a Survey Sampling Incorporated list of the nation's employers with three or more workers. The Kaiser/HRET Employer Benefits Survey is based on previous surveys sponsored by the Health Insurance Association of America from 1987-1990 and KPMG from 1991-1998. Researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation, the National Opinion Research Center at The University of Chicago, and the Health Research and Educational Trust designed and analyzed the survey.
