SACRAMENTO — State Controller Betty T. Yee today published the 2018 self-reported payroll data for the University of California (UC), California Community College (CCC) districts, and superior courts on the Government Compensation in California website. The data cover 449,358 positions and a total of nearly $21.42 billion in 2018 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 (306,007 employees), 51 CCC districts (122,826 employees), and 56 superior courts (20,525 employees). 

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 11 million pageviews. The site contains pay and benefit information on more than two million government jobs in California, as reported annually by each entity.

As the chief fiscal officer of California, Controller Yee is responsible for accountability and disbursement of the state’s financial resources. The Controller 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 and reelected in 2018, Controller Yee is the tenth woman elected to a statewide office in California’s history.
