"Pay Year" or "Report Year" represents the years for which salary data is provided.  When the data cover a budgeting period that crossed two years, the final year is listed; for example, education salaries for the 2008-09 school year are assigned a "Pay Year" of 2009, while data for the 2007-08 school year are assigned to 2008.  For the date range specific to each data set, see unit specific data notes.

 Other Notes:

(1) For payrolls, pay "rate" data represent base pay only, not including overtime and other extras.

(2) For payrolls, the "Total" column shows total pay for each data set's specified time period.

(3) Due to classification practices, the pay rates of some full-time employees are reported on a biweekly basis.  Multiply biweekly amounts by 26 to estimate full-year base pay.

(4) Some payrolls have an extra pay period for certain years.  Therefore, the individuals on these payrolls might have pay that is slightly higher than what they would have normally made.

(5) Data not reported by Agency or Area is represented by a blank field or "NDR" in search results.
