SACRAMENTO — State Controller Betty T. Yee today published the 2019 self-reported payroll data for the University of California (UC) and California Community College (CCC) districts on the Government Compensation in California website. The data cover 408,740 positions and a total of nearly $20.39 billion in 2019 wages.
Users of the site can view compensation levels on maps and search by region; narrow results by name of the entity or by job title; and export raw data or custom reports.
The newly published data were reported by 11 UC institutions (312,118 employees and $17.16 billion in wages) and 44 CCC districts (96,622 employees and $3.23 billion in wages).
California law requires cities, counties, and special districts to annually report compensation data to the State Controller. The State Controller also maintains and publishes state and California State University salary data. No such statutory requirement exists for UC, CCC, superior courts, fairs and expositions, First 5 commissions, or K-12 education providers; their reporting is voluntary. A list of entities that did not file or filed incomplete reports is available here.
Since the website launched in 2010, it has registered more than 12 million pageviews. The site contains pay and benefit information on more than two million government jobs in California, as reported annually by each entity.
