New Jersey’s Pension Systems – Visualized

Over the last few months, Pension360 has collected and analyzed the pension records of over 1,000,000 annuitants in New Jersey’s state-level pension systems.

We used the data to create a visual “snapshot” of each system — a way to see benefit payouts in a different, simple light.

The resulting heat maps, which can be seen below, visualize how benefits are distributed amongst the state’s pensioners, system by system.
