Now That's a Raise We'd Like to Have

Many of the executives on our list got big compensation increases last year, as the table below shows. To provide an apples-to-apples comparison, the table excludes the value of executives' stock options, since the guidelines for uniform reporting of options weren't in effect in 2005. The table lists only those people for whom we could get both 2006 and 2005 compensation data—31 executives in all.
