Educational Attainment of General Schedule Employees by Minority Group and Sex. Federal Civilian Personnel Statistics.
This study is the Civil Service Commission's first on the educational attainment of federal employees as of August 1974. It covers such subjects as minority group employment, employment of women, white-collar workers' occupations, blue-collar workers' occupations, pay structure, geographic distribution, and monthly manpower and pay reports. In the first of four parts, the introduction states that the report presents and analyzes educational attainment data for male and female full-time permanent General Schedule employees--federal civilian employees within their minority/non-minority groups. Part 2 defines the data parameters and study population. In part 3 statistics are given for educational attainment of General Schedule employees by minority/non-minority group and by sex. For instance, an educational attainment by minority group overview reveals that the Oriental group has the highest educational level, followed by the non-minority group. Black, Spanish-surnamed, and American Indian groups had considerably smaller percentages of employees with higher education. Part 4 compares Civil Service Commission data with U.S. Census data. Also, comparisons with Census data for employed white-collar workers are presented. Eleven text tables and eleven figures provide quantitative data throughout the document. Twelve tables based on the Civil Service Commission Central Personnel Data File and three based on U.S. Census data are appended. (CSS)
