The highest-paid CEOs by state

Here are the top-paid CEOs by state for 2015, as calculated by The Associated Press and Equilar, an executive data firm.

The survey considered public companies with at least $1 billion in revenue that filed proxy statements with federal regulators on or before April 30, 2016. It includes CEOs who were newly hired, who often receive large grants as incentives. It does not include data for Alaska, Montana or West Virginia.

This tally includes a wider group of companies than The AP’s other lists of top-paid CEOs for 2015, which include only executives in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index who have been at their post for at least two years, among other differences in criteria.
