Description of my final project

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

This project created regression models that predicted the annual salary of current Texas Government employees. The goal of this project was to find key drivers that influenced the annual salary of these employees. While exploring the data we used seaborn and scipy stats to visualize variable relationships. We also answered important questions such as: are there discrepancies for annual salary among races or genders? Lastly, we used scikit learn for regression modeling our best performing model was a 2nd degree polynomial with an r-squared value of 0.38 and an rmse of 20108.9 dollars.
