Employment by Gender, Race, & Ethnicity
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has recently issued three lengthy compendiums of labor force data by race and Hispanic origin (to 2012) and gender (to 2011), plus a special report on earnings by gender (to 2012) that includes selected earnings data by race and Hispanic origin.
1. Labor Force Characteristics by Race and Ethnicity, 2012 (October 2013, 62 pp.) includes the only published BLS data onNative Americans, and also includes data by Hispanic ethnicity by place of origin. Historical data are shown as far back as 1972.
2. Highlights of Women’s Earnings in 2012 (October 2013, 91 pp.) also includes state-level data (table 3), historical data as far back as 1979, and selected earnings data by race and Hispanic origin.
3. Women in the Labor Force: A Databook (February 2013, 104 pp.) is not quite as recent, as the most recent annual average data are for 2011 (for 2012 data, see number 1 above). It includes historical data back to 1970.
