Methodology Notes

Employers who answer "yes" are included as providing worksite lactation support.

In February 2009, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) conducted its annual survey to gather information on the types of benefits employers offer to their employees. The report provides an analysis of the 2009 SHRM Employee Benefits Survey results. The survey instrument listed 274 benefits and asked human resource (HR) professionals to indicate whether they offered these benefits to their employees.
