Description of my final project

Project Name: Houston, We Have a Pay Gap: Predicting Texas Public Employee Salaries

Despite being a touchy subject, salary figures are a critical data point for organizations who value diversity, equity, and inclusion. Using data acquired from The Texas Tribune, our goal was to create a regression model that predicts a government employee’s annual salary based on demographic information. In doing so we provided a methodology for companies and organizations who seek to analyze their own salary data. Possible outcomes of this type of analysis include: eliminating arbitrary biases in salary decisions, improving employee satisfaction, and reducing turnover.
