Equal Employment Opportunity Workforce Reports

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Reports

As part of its mandate under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requires periodic reports from public and private employers, and unions and labor organizations which indicate the composition of their workforces by sex and by race/ethnic category.

Under Public Law 88-352, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972, all state and local governments that have 15 or more employees are required to keep records and to make such reports to the EEOC as are specified in the regulations of the Commission. All states must file this report, as well as all other political jurisdictions that have 100 or more employees.

The EEOC collects labor force data from state and local governments with 100 or more employees within 50 U.S. states and District of Columbia. The reporting agencies provide information on their employment totals, employees’ job category and salary by sex and race/ethnic groups as of June 30 of the survey year. Since 1993, the EEO-4 survey is conducted biennially in every odd-numbered year (Source: EEOC.gov).

  • Office and Administration;
  • Professionals;
  • Technicians;
  • Protect Service;
  • Paraprofessionals;
  • Office/Clerical; and
  • Skilled Craft.

This report also shows the averages salaries of each EEOC job group by race (i.e., White, Black, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian, and Asian American) as well as by gender (male and female).
