A new database from the Washington-based Center for State and Local Government Excellence (CSLGE) and the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College offers access to a variety of state and local government pension data. The Public Plans Database (PPD) contains comprehensive financial, governance, and plan design information for 126 state and local defined benefit plans, along with additional data on state defined contribution plans.
Combined, the PPD represents more than 85 percent of total state and local government pension assets and members.
Data are collected from plans, annual reports, actuarial valuations, member handbooks, and contact with plan administrators.
Note: Data is also available to download.
