Spatial and Organizational Predictors of Newsroom Minority Employment.
Liebler, Carol M.
A study examined spatial factors (minority population, segregation, racial differences in the workforce and the educational system, and minority public officials) and organizational factors (ownership and circulation) that may predict newsroom minority employment. Data for this secondary analysis of 172 newspapers were gathered from earlier studies conducted by the American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE), the United States census, and other sources. Regression analysis and analysis of variance suggest that the most significant predictors of newsroom minority employment are minority population, newspaper ownership, race of mayor, and ethnicity of regional workforce. (Five tables of data are included; 15 references are attached.) (Author/RS)
