Note: This data was released by Baltimore County and has not been verified on a row-by-row basis by The Baltimore Sun. Baltimore County school salaries are part of a separate data set, and are not included here. Extreme ranges -- a variation between a worker's salary and overtime of more than 50,000%, for example -- can in some cases be attributed to copying errors on the part of department staffs. Extremely low salaries are also hourly rates in many cases. Government officials interviewed for this and previous salary projects say pay that varies from base salary can be attributable to overtime, but could also be from promotions, stipends or terminations. While salaries are recorded in correspondence with the fiscal year in which they are assigned, payment is recorded by calendar year. Salaries of zero dollars or zero percent may represent multiple scenarios, including contracting relationships and dismissals, respectively. Base-salary figures do not always represent actual salary paid, which can be higher or lower. Because of this, and because of some recordkeeping discrepancies and manual accounting adjustments in the raw data provided by the county, search totals do not always balance. Please note that this database includes information from 2008, 2009 and 2010 but does not necessarily include employees hired after those years.
