Civil Service Commission, Washington, DC. Manpower Statistics Div.
Conducted as part of a part of the overall equal employment opportunity program under Executive Order 11478, this report contains data based on a world-wide census of minority group employment in the Federal Government as of November 30, 1970. Intended primarily for use by those who manage the Federal civilian work force, data are included for Negroes, Spanish-surnamed persons, American Indians, Orientals, Aleuts, and Eskimos. Some highlights of the study are: (1) Net minority employment increased by 4,527 jobs between November 1969 and November 1970 despite a decrease in total Federal employment; (2) Minority groups accounted for nearly half of the net increase in employment at GS-9 and above; (3) At grades GS-5 through GS-8, minority employment increased by 5,497 jobs; and (4) Negroes, Spanish-surnamed Americans, American Indians, and Oriental Americans held 505,035 full-time Federal jobs in November 1970 as compared to 500,508 in November 1969. Several data tables, which comprise most of this report, are appended. (SB)
