Comparing Average Salaries of Teachers in Indiana and Ohio
Arts and Sciences
Department of Mathematics and Statistics
The focus of this project is to compare average salaries of teachers in Indiana and Ohio. Data was obtained from information published in the Lafayette Journal and Courier, and the Dayton Business Journal for the 2013-2014 academic year. We computed the mean of the average salary by school district for Indiana and compared this to the corresponding mean for Ohio. We conducted a two-sample t test to determine if there is a statistically significant difference between the two means. We also discuss limitations of the data and the extent to which the results can be generalized for graduating education majors who are seeking jobs in Indiana or Ohio.
