The Center for State and Local Government Excellence (SLGE( and the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College have partnered to develop the Public Plans Database (PPD).








The Public Plans Database (PPD) contains comprehensive financial, governance, and plan design information for 126 state and local defined benefit plans.* At the state level, the PPD covers 107 plans, which represent more than 90 percent of all state government pension assets and members. At the local level, the PPD covers 19 plans, which represent more than 20 percent of all local government pension assets and members. On a combined basis, the PPD represents more than 85 percent of total state and local government pension assets and members. 

Currently, the interactive data pages contain data through 2010. For more recent data, download our full dataset. This fall, we are introducing a new Public Plans Database website that will allow interactive access to the most current data.
