(1) The definitions for paid sick leave and short-term disability
(previously sickness and accident insurance) were changed for the 1995
survey. Paid sick leave now includes only plans that specify either a
maximum number of days per year or unlimited days. Short-terms
disability now induces all insured, self-insured, and State-mandated
plans available on a per-disability basis, as well as the unfunded
per-disability plans previously reported as sick leave. Sickness and
accident insurance, reported in years prior to this survey, included
only insured, self-insured, and State-mandated plans providing
per-disability bene-fits at less than full pay.

(2) Prior to 1995, reimbursement accounts included premium conversion
plans, which specifically allow medical plan participants to pay
required plan premiums with pretax dollars. Also. reimbursement
accounts that were part of flexible benefit plans were tabulated
separately.

(1) Methods used to calculate the average number of paid holidays were
revised in 1994 to count partial days more precisely. Average holidays
for 1994 are not comparable with those reported in 1990 and 1992.

(2) The definitions for paid sick leave and short-term disability
(previously sickness and accident insurance) were changed for the 1996
survey. Paid sick leave now includes only plans that specify either a
maximum number of days per year or unlimited days. Short-term
disability now includes all insured, self-insured, and State-mandated
plans available on a per-disability basis, as well as the unfunded
per-disability plans previously reported as sick leave.

Sickness and accident insurance, reported in years prior to this
survey, included only insured, self-insured, and State-mandated plans
providing per-disability benefits at less than full pay.

(3) Prior to 1996, reimbursement accounts included premium conversion
plans, which specifically allow medical plan participants to pay
required plan premiums with pretax dollars. Also, reimbursement
accounts that were part of flexible benefit plans were tabulated
separately.
