Total compensation costs for civilian workers increased 0.3 percent from December 2008 to
March 2009, seasonally adjusted, the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor
reported today.  This follows a 0.6 percent increase for the September to December 2008 period.
In March 2009, wages and salaries also rose 0.3 percent, while benefits rose 0.5 percent.  The
Employment Cost Index (ECI), a product of the National Compensation Survey, measures changes in
compensation costs for civilian workers (nonfarm private industry and state and local government
workers).
