Abstract

After the Operation Car Wash, deflagrated by the federal police force in Brazil, politicians are on the spot of attention as consequence of the several corruption scandals becoming public. Applying machine learning techniques, this work analysed the Brazilian deputies claim expenses for the exercise of the parliamentary activity from a party perspective and identified unusual activity in regarding the claims from 2013 to 2016. It was also applied two different time series techniques, Holt Winters and an Artificial Neural Network, to forecast the claim expenses and propose a reduction in the deputies allowance.
