What do these numbers mean and why are they public?

The salaries listed in our explorer are taken directly from records submitted by various public entities in response to our public information requests.

Tribune journalists publish this data because they believe that disclosing how tax dollars are spent is in the public interest. These figures include a snapshot of each worker's annual base full-time or part-time salary — not overtime, incentive pay or other compensation.
