General Schedule Payscales by State

Most salaried Federal government employees are paid under the General Schedule payscale, where total pay is determined by a base pay rate that is modified by a locality adjustment rate, a cost of living factor that is determined by where the employee lives and works. In this section of the site, you can find locality-adjusted pay tables by state and city.
