NEW CHART: EEOC Charge Data from FY 1997-2016

The EEOC just released its enforcement and litigation data for FY 2016. You know what that means... updated chart! Overall, the number of charges increased for the second straight year to 91,503 (still far short of 99,000+ in 2010, 2011, and 2012).

Not included in my chart: Retaliation, which leads the way with 42,018 charges, (45.9% of all charges filed); GINA, with only 238 charges; Color (3,102); and Equal Pay Act (1,075).
