National Collegiate Athletic Association (NJ1)
For the ninth consecutive year, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) compiled this statistical information regarding student-athlete race, ethnicity and resident alien status in intercollegiate athletics at its member institutions. This information provides a general view of recent historical student-athlete race and ethnicity trends by gender, sport and division. The first section of this report describes factors that affect the data, offers suggestions for the reader, defines the race and ethnicity categories and provides findings by division. The second section provides student-athlete race and ethnicity percentages for each sport in separate tables by year, division and for the NCAA overall. Next, the percentages in those tables are illustrated via graphs overall and by division. Separate graphs for the minority categories only are also in this section. Following the graphs section, estimated frequency tables are presented in the same format as the percentages tables. The last two sections restate the nine year's worth of percentage and estimated frequency data in separate tables for each sport.
