The U.S. EEOC just-released portions of its fiscal year 2011 and 2012 report on the federal work force. The report is full of interesting data with relation to federal employees, and examines the level of diversity in the federal workforce. The report also sets forth the number of EEO complaints received by the agency as well as the timeline for completing its investigations. From the news release on the report:
"Overall diversity in federal employment rose slightly in FY 2011, even as the total federal work force declined. According to the report, between FY 2010 and 2011 the work force participation rates increased for employees who are:
- Hispanic or Latino, from 7.90% to 7.95%;
- Asian, from 5.90% to 5.95%;
- Black or African American, from 17.94% to 17.97%; and
- Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, from 0.36% to 0.38 %.
Additionally, the number of federal employees with targeted disabilities rose to 0.90% after a consecutive 10-year decline, followed by three years of holding steady at 0.88%.”
The report is definitely worth taking a look at if you are interested in any of this data, or if you are working on scholarship related to this area.
