The purpose of my project was to look at how higher levels of education impact the average salary earned in each county in Ireland and to answer the question: is it worth it, financially, to pursue higher education?

This analysis was based off of each level of education after secondary school and it took a look at what someone could expect based on the county that they reside in and their gender. The data was obtained from the 2016 census data from Central Statistics Office of Ireland and was imported into R Studio. I created an interactive interface of the map of Ireland where the user can choose the gender and level of education obtained to visualise the data using a coloured scaling scheme.

The objective of the analysis was to shed light on counties that may fall behind on higher education in Ireland to start a conversation on why and what could be done to remedy it.
