* CEO pay includes total compensation information disclosed in company proxy statements for fiscal year 2015, including salary, bonus, stock and options valued at grant date, any deferred compensation, and other compensation (including benefits and perks). To compare companies of similar sizes, the study was restricted to companies with at least $1 billion in revenue, and thus excluded Alaska, Montana and West Virginia for lack of data (Washington, D.C. was included, and since Oracle’s co-CEOs made essentially the same amount, thus there are 49 CEOs total on the list).
