Michigan Government Salaries Database

As part of our efforts on government transparency, we obtained data on the compensation of most public employees in the state. This information has been used to fact check claims about salaries, verify data from other open records requests, and hold government spending accountable. We offer this database as a service to taxpayers – if you support our efforts, please consider making a donation.

The information in this database is gathered through public records requests to the state’s Department of Management and Budget. It includes data about school employees and many (but not all) state workers. We asked for pensionable salaries for the past three full fiscal years – the information is posted as we received it. If you have any questions, contact the responsible government authorities.
