Collection: Public employees
Description: Description: Salary data for public employees in Kentucky as of Dec. 31, 2019. Missing data is being treated as blanks. This data was obtained through a public records request to the Kentucky Personnel Cabinet. Please note the following about the data, according to the Cabinet: - Contractors, board members and payroll only employees are not considered state employees. - When data is missing from the "2019 Gross Wages" column, it means that the employee had only begun working in that position in December 2019. - A pay period is one month. - Interim employees are only allowed to work nine months out of the year, and they are mainly paid hourly. - Schoolteachers and employees at public universities are not included in this dataset, as the Kentucky Department of Education has that data. This data will be added to The Accountability Project's website when it is obtained.
