State Controller Betty T. Yee published the 2020 self-reported payroll data for University of California (UC) institutions and California Community College (CCC) districts on the Government Compensation in California website. The data cover more than 411,000 positions and approximately $22.77 billion in total 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.
All 11 UC institutions – including 10 campuses and the Office of the President – voluntarily filed compliant reports with the State Controller’s Office (SCO). UC data cover 293,024 employees and nearly $18.11 billion in total wages.
Forty-nine CCC districts voluntarily filed compliant reports with SCO. CCC data published cover 118,652 employees and nearly $4.67 billion in total wages. Twelve CCC districts did not file a report with SCO, while another 11 filed reports that were not compliant.
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 CSU salary data. No such statutory requirement exists for UC, CCCs, superior courts, fairs and expositions, First 5 commissions, or K-12 education providers; their reporting is voluntary.
Since the website launched in 2010, it has registered more than 13 million pageviews. The site contains pay and benefit information on more than two million government jobs in California, as reported annually by each entity.
