New data last appended: 8:30 a.m. Nov. 15, 2019
New, standardized columns will always be added at the end of the data so new information can be appended to the bottom. A file of the original data will also be kept here.
Nov. 13: I have created a numerical salary column, a numerical experience column and roughly cleaned employer column. I'll build out a broader data dictionary as I go.
Nov. 15: Removed several troll entries, appended another 400 or so data slots. Further refined title_category column.
If you have suggestions/criticisms, you can ping me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Totally open to outside contributions as well.
I'll add to this as I do more work:

|employer||original employer column|
|salary||original salary column|
|gender||original gender column|
|years_exp||original years experience column|
|Location||original location column|
|duties||original "job duties" column|
|comments||original "prev salaries/titles/etc" column|
|employer_clean||column standardizes publication names removing words like "the" and various minor permutations|
|base_salary_clean||Changes all salaries to numerical values, where possible. Only base salaries included. Bonuses, if specified, not included.|
|sal_flag||rows where base salary calculation not available for various reasons (non-usd, hourly)|
|years_exp_clean||numerical version of years exp column|
|location_forgeo||beginning of standardized location column that would be fit to geocode. Non-specific locations eliminated|
|title_category||first pass at standardizing 'title' column. Grouped many positions, but needs more work.|
