Note: This data was released by the State of Maryland, and has not been verified on a row-by-row basis by The Baltimore Sun. Extreme ranges -- in hiring dates, for example -- can in some cases be attributed to copying errors on the part of department staffs. State officials say pay that varies from base salary can be attributable to overtime, but could also be from promotions, stipends, shift differentials, terminations or unpaid furloughs. 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 State of Maryland, search totals do not always balance.
