Analyzing the U.S. Government’s Payroll

by Joshua New
Office of Personnel Management

BuzzFeed News has published payroll data for millions of U.S. government employees dating back to 1973 that it obtained from the Office of Personnel Management through a Freedom of Information Act request. The data includes salary, title, and demographic information for federal employees, as well as tracks their employment histories with the government, which can shed light on how people transition into and out of government jobs. This data has been made publicly available in different formats, but this is the first time the information is available for download.
