More than 100,000 federal workers responded to the questionnaire from the Office of Personnel Management, which says the survey is a tool to help it determine how to attract and retain employees.

Of those answering the questionnaire, 56 percent said their pay was "good" or "very good" and most said they were content with their paid-time off (83 percent) and retirement benefits (66 percent), according to the newspaper.

Conducted from May 2002 through August 2002, the survey found that 64 percent of the federal workers said they were "satisfied" or "very satisfied" with their pay. Over 82 percent of workers said they like the work they do, according to the survey.

Only 43 percent said they held their organizations' leaders in high regard, though, the newspaper notes.

While federal workers in general said they are content with their paid-time off and retirement benefits, just over 50 percent gave positive responses on health care insurance, the newspaper reports.

The Post notes that the OPM said employee-satisfaction levels regarding pay have increased since 1991-1992, when 32 percent of employees said they were satisfied with their pay.
