MetadataShow full item record
This project will help cover the answer to the following question: Which statistics are used to determine an NFL player’s salary? Through a regression analysis of 205 NFL players from their signing contract years of 2014-2019, this project determined that touchdowns did not have a significant impact on players’ salaries. It was found that age and the number of yards that a player produced significantly determines a player’s salary. This implies that both physical characteristics and productivity are huge factors in salary determination.
