The Short-Time Compensation Study public use data (1991-1994) examine the impact of short-time compensation (STC) on firm behavior in California, Florida, Kansas, New York, and Washington. State unemployment insurance data and employer survey data are used to analyze the STC option within the UI system, which provide employers with an alternative to layoffs.
The study was conducted in 1996 with data coverage from 1991 to 1994. Mathematica Policy Research, Inc. compiled the state unemployment insurance data from UI administrative records for a matched sample of STC and non-STC participants in the five states based on industry, employment, and UI tax rate.

Berkeley Planning Associates conducted the 1996 telephone survey of individual employers (selected from the administrative records file) and requested information about STC participation in 1992. The survey file includes:
The administrative record file contains 3,415 observations and 839 variables, and the employer survey data file contains 502 observations and 255 variables.
