DATA NOTES: State Government Payroll

The New York State government data, as provided by the state comptroller's office, includes the names, positions, wage and salary rates, and total pay (including overtime and other extras) of every individual who worked for the state.

New York State government payroll data reflects information that is current as of December 31 for the years 2008 through 2017.

*Due to nuances in reporting systems, select individuals may also appear in the school payroll section.

Note: The 2017 CUNY records, which are unusually numerous, may reflect a recently settled contract between the university and its largest union, the Professional Staff Congress.
