The names, titles and salaries of all 283,117 individuals who worked for New York’s state government in 2016 have now been posted as a searchable database at SeeThroughNY.net, the Empire Center’s transparency website.

Including state payroll records starting in 2008, SeeThroughNY’s uniquely broad and deep government salary database includes all executive agency employees, as well as the judicial and legislative payrolls.

SeeThroughNY includes payroll and pension data for state and local government employees and retirees; detailed expenditure data for the state Legislature; comparative statistics on local government spending; a searchable database of state revenue and expenditures; and copies of teacher, school superintendent, police and fire contracts.

The Empire Center, based in Albany, is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit think tank dedicated to promoting policies to make New York a better place to live, work and do business.
