October 17, 2019

CBC’s Headcount Interactive Data Feature allows you to trend total headcount from fiscal year 2004 through fiscal year 2023, the final year in the financial plan, and visualize changes by category of employee (civilian, pedagogical, and uniform). From fiscal year 2014 (the last year of the Bloomberg Administration), headcount is projected to increase 12.1 percent by the close of fiscal year 2020 to reach 333,433 positions. Headcount is projected to reach an all-time high in fiscal year 2022.
