Note: Comparisons of average assessment rates can be misleading and are influenced by the various methods adopted by WCBs for developing these averages. For example, weighting of individual rates by payroll or by industry can significantly impact the average rate. The mix of industry, the varying benefit levels and earnings ceilings, extent of industry coverage and degree of funding of liabilities can also result in distorted comparisons of average assessment rates by jurisdiction. Caution should be exercised in how average WCB assessment rates are used.
