Notes

* 2017 earned compensation was calculated from salary information in Schedule J of Form 990s, summing total and related total compensation and subtracting from it any compensation reported as deferred on prior Form 990s. Compensation marked with an A indicates entries where previously deferred pay was listed, and the compensation adjusted.
** Percentage in “other” is the percentage of unadjusted total and related total compensation that can be found in Form 990, column B(iii): “Other reportable compensation.” This column can include - but is not limited to - previously reported deferred pay. The percentage reported is provided for context, especially for instances where previously reported deferred pay was not broken out as instructed in the Form 990, and so the 2017 earned compensation was not adjusted.
