Pulaski County employment data online 

In the Times new searchable database.

In mid-May, the Times launched a new public data section on its website with a searchable database of the Little Rock government employee payroll (find it at arktimes.com/LRpayroll). It's a database that we hope to update with other public information as we go along. This week, we launched another section that includes data on employees of Pulaski County (find it at arktimes.com/PCpayroll).

It includes the name, title, department, gender, hire date and pay level of all county employees.

A quick look at the data shows some things one might expect and others that might come as a surprise. For example, Pulaski County Judge Buddy Villines, at $91,592 per year, is paid less than the Pulaski County Detention Center Chief Randall Morgan ($108,668 per year) and the county's civil attorney, Karla Hutchens, who pulls down $91,596 a year.

County government wages and salaries seem equitable as far as gender is concerned. All told, Pulaski County employs 624 women and 645 men (573 of those women hold salaried positions, as do 588 of the men). The median hourly wage for women is actually higher, at $10.50 per hour, than that for the men, who earn a median wage of $10. The numbers on Little Rock employees weren't quite so even. Men were four times as likely to land salaried positions. In terms of hourly pay, the median wage for men was $17.71 per hour. The median hourly pay for women is $13.83.

We will be using this and other databases as a source for our reporting in the future, and consider them to be a useful tool for those who want a transparent government. Let us know what you find. Write to data@arktimes.com.
