The Sacramento Bee’s California state salary database has been revamped and updated with calendar 2013 payroll numbers. The data feeding the site are the amounts paid to employees according to the State Controller's Office. The information goes back to 2007.

The site has been upgraded to make searches faster. Users can search by individual name and/or department and sort lists by name, job title and pay amount. Individual searches break results into base pay, overtime and other pay and compare salary from previous years.

Be sure to read the notes at the bottom of the state pay page for an explanation of the data and how The Bee put it together.
