What is the Judicial Salary Tracker?

The Survey of Judicial Salaries, published for over 40 years by the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) with the support of state court administrative offices across the United States, serves as the primary record of compensation for state judicial officers and state court administrators. This website tracks judicial salary information since 1974, highlights recent special reports, and provides the most recently published salary information.  Where possible, the salary figures are actual salaries. In jurisdictions where some judges receive supplements, the figures are the most representative available—either the base salary, the midpoint of a range between the lowest and highest supplemented salaries, or the median.
