About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of employers indicating they provide an on-site lactation/mother's room
Number of employers responding to the survey
From the 2009 Employee Benefits Survey:
Do you provide employees an on-site lactation/mother's room?
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.
