Notes: Among firms offering spousal benefits.
“Not encountered” refers to firms where no workers requested domestic partner benefits and there is no corporate policy on coverage for same-sex spouses. Eighty-nine percent of small firms (3-199 workers) offering health benefits and 99% percent of larger firms offer spousal health benefits.
