An Analysis of Race and Ethnic Categories in Career Research from 1990 to 2007
Wells, Eliza M.; Delgado-Romero, Edward A.; Shelton, Kimber L.
Journal of Career Development, v37 n2 p503-518 Aug 2010
Previous research concerning the reporting of race and ethnicity in empirical research was replicated and expanded. One thousand two hundred sixty-eight studies over the years 1990-2007 were examined in the following journals: "Career Development Quarterly," "Journal of Career Assessment," "Journal of Career Development," and "Journal of Vocational Behavior." Results indicated that 62% of studies from 1990 to 1999 and 46% from 2000 to 2007 do not report race or ethnicity at all. A racial/ethnic profile of the research participants over the 18-year period was constructed and compared with the U.S. population for that time period, as well as to previous research. The authors provide implications and suggestions for future research. (Contains 1 table.)
