NEW THIS YEAR back to top

Based on an updated questionnaire and new reporting features that came on-line earlier this year, towns can now:

• Download union contracts from the site, along with job descriptions and organizational charts as part of a new document section

• Calculate median salaries

• Compare multiple positions across communities

• Download statewide salary data to one file for additional analyses


While we have already uploaded the latest DPH population figures into the system, updated mill rates are not expected to be available statewide from OPM until February.

Both the FTE question that was initially asked in FY 2016-2017 and the revised version that was posed in FY 2017-2018 have been pulled from the published data sets due to inconsistent responses. If you have a question regarding these data points, please contact CCM or CRCOG directly.

Going Forward back to top

Staff is still hard at work reviewing and cleaning the new health and other benefit plan data (health, vision, dental, LTD, etc.) collected this year. Please note that previously submitted surveys may be pulled off-line temporarily to make needed changes, so if you don’t see survey data for a particular community, please check back again soon.

Have general questions on how to access the data and run related reports? Did you notice some odd data outliers? Please contact AJ Birmingham at CCM at or Hedy Ayers at CRCOG at
