PSCE SURVEY
SURVEY OF COMPANY SUPPLEMENTARY SOCIAL PROTECTION

PRESENTATION

The survey on complementary social protection offered by employers (PSCE) provides an overview of the health and provident insurance offered by employers in France. Collecting data by interviewing companies, the survey gives a general overview of such a social protection system (differentiation between categories of employees, level of employer’s financial participation, level of guaranties…). Since 2009, the PSCE survey has introduced a questionnaire administered to employees collecting, among others, their views concerning workplace health insurance.

The survey polls about 1,700 companies and 3,000 employees throughout France.
