The BLS just published a report researchers may find of interest and very useful. As the report states:
This report describes the labor force characteristics and
earnings patterns among the largest race and ethnicity
groups living in the United States—Whites, Blacks, Asians,
and Hispanics—and provides detailed data through a set
of supporting tables. The report also includes a limited
amount of data for American Indians and Alaska Natives
and for Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders,
people who are of Two or More Races, detailed Hispanic
ethnicity and, for the first time, detailed Asian groups.
Among the interesting statistics, Whites make up 79% of the workforce while Blacks and Asians make up 12% and 6%. The report can be downloaded at no charge here.
