The Public Employers Compensation Survey: Individual Organization Report contains data displayed by individual organization for City and County governments, Parks & Recreation Districts, Public Library Districts, and Fire Department/Districts only. In addition, this report includes the general information data, such as pay practices for police and fire positions, as well as other position-specific data.
The Public Employers Compensation Survey: Aggregate Report contains data displayed by aggregate results for City and County governments, Public and Private Utility, Parks & Recreation Districts, Public Library Districts, Fire Department/District, Utilities, and Other organizations. This report does not contain general information data.
