                                             EMPLOYMENT COST INDEX - MARCH 2010


     Compensation costs for civilian workers increased 0.6 percent, seasonally adjusted, for the 3-month period
ending March 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Wages and salaries (which make up about
70 percent of compensation costs) increased 0.4 percent while benefits (which make up the remaining 30 percent
of compensation)--increased 1.1 percent.

Civilian Worker Data

     Compensation costs for civilian workers increased 1.7 percent for the 12-month period ending March 2010.
This was smaller than the 2.1 percent increase for the 12-month period ending in March 2009. Wages and salaries
increased 1.5 percent for the current 12-month period, slowing from a 2.2 percent increase for the 12-month
period ending in March 2009. Benefit costs rose 2.2 percent, compared with a 2.0 percent increase for the
12-month period ending March 2009.

Private Industry Worker Data

     Compensation costs for private industry workers increased 1.6 percent, compared to 1.9 percent for the
12-month period ending March 2009. The wage and salary series increased 1.5 percent for the current 12-month
period, compared to 2.0 percent for the period ending March 2009. The cost of benefits increased 2.0 percent for
the 12-month period ending March 2010 primarily due to increases in the cost of health benefits and defined benefit
retirement plans. In March 2009, benefits increased 1.6 percent. Employer costs for health benefits increased
4.5 percent for the 12-month period ending March 2010. In March 2009, the 12-month percent change was 4.6 percent.

     Among occupational groups, compensation cost increases for private industry workers for the 12-month period
ending March 2010 ranged from 1.3 percent for management, professional, and related occupations to 2.1 percent
for natural resources, construction, and maintenance occupations.

     Among industries, compensation cost increases for private industry workers for the current 12-month period
     ranged from 1.0 percent for professional and business services to 2.8 percent for financial activities.

State and Local Government Workers

     Compensation costs for State and local government workers increased 2.0 percent for the 12-month period ending
March 2010. Prior published values ranged from 2.3 to 9.6 percent since the series began in June 1982. Wages and
salaries increased 1.8 percent. Prior published values ranged from 1.9 to 8.5 percent since the series began, also
in June 1982.  Benefit costs increased 2.7 percent. Prior published values ranged from 1.2 to 8.3 percent since
the series began in June 1990.

                                                TECHNICAL NOTE

     The Employment Cost Index (ECI) measures the change in the cost of labor, free from the influence of employment
shifts among occupations and industries. Detailed information on survey concepts, coverage, and methods can be found in
BLS Handbook of Methods, Chapter 8, "National Compensation Measures," Bureau of Labor Statistics, on the Internet at
www.bls.gov/opub/hom/pdf/homch8.pdf.

Sample size

     Data for the March 2010 reference period were collected from a probability sample of approximately 63,300 occupational
observations selected from a sample of about 13,300 establishments in private industry and approximately 11,600 occupations
from a sample of about 1,800 establishments in State and local governments.

Health insurance data

     Data from the ECI that provides 12-month percent changes in employer costs for health insurance in private industry
are also available at www.bls.gov/ect/sp/echealth.pdf.

Historical listings

     Historical listings that provide all ECI data are available at www.bls.gov/ect/#tables. Included among these
listings is one that provides continuous occupational and industry series. This listing uses the Standard Industrial
Classification Manual and Census of Population series through 2005 and the North American Industry Classification
System and Standard Occupational Classification from 2006 to the present. It provides the official series from the
beginning of the ECI in 1975 through the current quarter. For more information on the criteria used in defining continuous
series, see the article published in the Monthly Labor Review at www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2006/04/art2full.pdf.

Employer Costs for Employee Compensation data

     The costs per hour worked of compensation components, based on data from the ECI, are published in a separate news
release titled "Employer Costs for Employee Compensation" (ECEC). The next ECEC release is scheduled for 10:00 AM EDT,
Wednesday, June 9, 2010. Historical ECEC data are available in summary documents. Since the ECEC is calculated with
current employment weights rather than the fixed weights used in computing the ECI, year-to-year changes in the cost
levels usually differ from those in the ECI.
