Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

EBRI Databook on Employee Benefits

Sometimes, the best source of government statistics may be published by someone other than the government. A case in point:

Drawing from the March Current Population Survey, the National Health Expenditures data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employee Benefit Survey and National Compensation Survey, and the National Income and Product Accounts (NIPA) data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, as well as the William M. Mercer National Survey of Employer-sponsored Health Plans and other sources, the ERBI Databook seeks to provide “a comprehensive analysis of how the employee benefits system works, who and what its various functions affect, and its relationship with the U.S. economy.” It includes over 400 tables and charts presenting vital statistics on the employee benefit system.

EBRI is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization established in 1978, whose mission is “to contribute to, to encourage, and to enhance the development of sound employee benefit programs and sound public policy through objective research and education.”
