Lowest Glass Ceiling Compared with Other Groups

The above chart shows that Asian Americans have the worst chance to rise to the managerial level in the private industries, universities and Federal government, where 2.1 million of us work: only 55% the chance as compared to the national average in the private industries, 41% the chance in universities, and 30% chance in the Federal government.

EEOC confirmed 80-20’s data is “consistent” with their calculations.

On 4/12/2006, Ron Edwards, EEOC’s statistics expert, stated “Your calculations [to arrive at the chart’s conclusions] are consistent with mine.”

Still the lowest glass ceiling using a method preferred by OFCCP, Dept of Labor

OFCCP prefers to use Census data for the “Total Civilian workforce.” Even with their calculations, see how AsAms STILL do the worst among all groups.
