The data published in a special report by the Times Herald-Record includes public employees of 132 cities, towns and villages, BOCES, school districts and universities and state and county agencies that Hudson Valley region on New York. We asked each public agency for the same information: a list of employees by name, job title and salary. Whenever possible, we labeled an employee’s gender to conduct an analysis of pay based on that attribute. There are about 39,000 records in the database. We provided a number of search options including the ability to cross reference two municipalities or school districts.
