Minority Mobility Project. Interim Report, March 1971-August 1972.
The Minority Mobility Project (MMP) is concerned with personnel policies and practices which impart the utilization and upward mobility of minorities and women. The report details the various policy and analytical research questions raised in the course of a project involving quantitative and qualitative analyses of primary data on personnel practices collected at two large companies. One of the companies had implemented an affirmative action plan, and the other had very low utilization and a long history of not hiring minorities and women in other than clerical positions. The report describes in detail the approach and the analyses used to answer the policy and research questions, relates the findings, and discusses their practical and policy implications. A method for establishing, a priori, the degree of compliance of a firm or industry was developed by simple statistical measurements of parity. Instructions for the computation of population, occupation, and comparative parity measures are presented. (Author/AG)
