This is a simple question but I am not sure how to find out the answer. Where in the world are the salaries of (senior) academics published and freely available? I found this amazing web page from Canada. Is it unique?
So far we have learned: (See answers and comments for more details.)
- Many US states give full salary details for public university employees.
- The province of Ontario in Canada gives full salary details.
- Switzerland gives full salary details (although no URL given yet).
- In Denmark you can infer the salary fairly accurately from seniority and job classification.
- In Finland (and possibly Norway and Sweden), everyone's basic tax records are public information although you can't access it online.
- In Germany salaries for individual professors are secret, but salaries for other researchers can be inferred from public salary tables.
- In the UK salaries for individual professors are secret, but salaries for more junior academics can often be inferred from published salary tables.
It would be great to get a fuller picture for Europe. What is the situation in France, for example?
