SACRAMENTO — State Controller Betty T. Yee has updated her Government Compensation in California website to include 2014 self-reported data for 538 K-12 public school districts, charter schools, and county offices of education. The data covers 609,259 positions and a total of more than $22 billion in wages in 2014.

Users of the site can:

  • View compensation levels on maps and search for compensation by region;
  • Narrow results by name of entity or by job title;
  • Build charts and trend graphics; and
  • Export custom reports or raw data.

Since the site was launched in 2010, it has registered more than 8 million page views. The site now contains information on more than 2 million jobs in California, as reported by each government entity.

The State Controller’s Office is expected to receive data from 1,794 K-12 public school districts, charter schools, and offices of education. About 70 percent failed to file or provided incomplete or late information, compared to 67 percent last year. Of this total:

  • 1,190 K-12 entities did not file reports.
  • 66 K-12 entities provided incomplete or late information. A list of noncompliant entities is available here.

City and county government 2014 compensation data will be uploaded in December, and special districts data will be added in February.

As the chief fiscal officer of California, Controller Yee is responsible for accountability and disbursement of the state’s financial resources. The Controller also safeguards many types of property until claimed by the rightful owners, and has independent auditing authority over government agencies that spend state funds. She is a member of numerous financing authorities, and fiscal and financial oversight entities including the Franchise Tax Board. She also serves on the boards for the nation's two largest public pension funds. Elected in 2014, Controller Yee is the tenth woman elected to a statewide office in California’s history.
