Civil Service Commission, Washington, DC. Manpower Statistics Div.
Minority employment surveys in the Federal Government are conducted as part of an overall equal employment opportunity program under Executive Order 11478. Data in the report are based upon a census of minority group employment in the Federal Government as of May 31, 1973. The census includes Negroes, Spanish-surnamed persons, American Indians, Orientals, Aleuts and Eskimos. Geographically, the survey covers all States (except Hawaii), foreign countries, and United States territories (except Guam and Puerto Rico). Some highlights of the study are: (1) despite the continued decline in total Federal employment, minority employment has continued to increase; (2) total minority employment expanded by 1.9 percent to make up 20.4 percent of the Federal workforce; (3) employment of Negroes increased by .02 percent to now represent 15.7 percent of the total Federal workforce; (4) employment of Spanish-surnamed Americans increased by 2.2 percent to make up 3.1 percent of the total Federal workforce; (5) American Indian employment experienced a 1.1 percent increase in Federal employment; and, (6) Oriental employment decreased by 8.8 percent. Data tables detailing the results of the study comprise the body of the report. (MW)
