Charts of Minority Private Sector Employment 1966-2007

OK, before we get to the charts a quick note that the EEOC has issued New Data on Job Patterns in the Private Sector. As part of a push for "open government," they're posting aggregate data sets of the results of the 2008 EEO-1 survey. They claim it's part of a "larger EEOC effort to advance the President’s goal of opening up our government and providing greater access to agency information and operations."

The 2008 data shows the following rates of employment (by race):

White - 65.58%
Black - 13.98%
Hispanic - 13.48%
Asian American - 5.30%
American Indian - 0.57%
Hawaiian - 0.36%
2 or More - 0.74%
