The Reality of Intentional Job Discrimination in Metropolitan America -- 1999
© 2002, Alfred W. and Ruth G. Blumrosen.
Professors Alfred W. Blumrosen, the Thomas Cowan Professor at Rutgers University Law School, and Ruth G. Blumrosen, under a grant from the Ford Foundation, have compiled the raw data filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, on annual reports called EEO-1 forms, into statistics and applied the Supreme Court's test for statistically evidencing intentional discrimination to metropolitan areas across the United States. These reports, issued in 2002, are based on information provided to the Federal Government by employers in 1999.|
One finding of the study is that many workers are better off in 1999 than they would have been if trends had continued unchanged from 1975.
This is summarized in the Beyond the Rising Tides charts.
