More than $320 million in cash and stock awards can be found in the interactive database (see below) with compensation details for 166 executives.
Dig deeper in the searchable database below that breaks down total pay by company and by executive. The database also shows shareholder return and the ratio of executive pay compared with the average worker in the same industry.
WCPO analyzed compensation numbers from the annual proxy statements to shareholders of 33 Cincinnati-based public companies. S&PCapital IQ supplied numbers for all companies that filed fiscal year 2013 proxies before April 21. It also supplied figures on shareholder return andmarket capitalization, or the total value of all shares at the end of each company’s 2013 fiscal year. WCPO compiled all remaining numbers, including compensation figures for company directors.
WCPO uses the same methodology as Associated Press/Equilar in measuring total compensation, excluding changes in pension plan values. Figures on average worker salaries come from the report: May 2013 National Industry-Specific Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates.
From that report, WCPO pulled average worker salaries from the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes that most closely match each company. NAICS is the standard used by federal agencies to classify businesses in order to collect, analyze and publish statistics tied to the U.S. economy.
