Black Share of New Hires and Separations

Description: 

There are a total of 14 graphs here.  If you click on Black Share of New Hires in AZ Industries this shows Blacks represented an average of 7.2 percent of all new hires in Arizona from 2005 to 2012 and 6.6 percent of all separations.  Then if you click on View, the dropdown menus has seven fields.  These fields are the major STEM industries in AZ.  If you go to bottom of graph and click on Black separation in AZ Industries you see a similar pattern (and separation data refers to percentage of folk fired/laid off).  For IT, of all people working in that field, Blacks are underrepresented as they are in all STEM fields, but for new hires, more proportionate share—more new hires that are Black in IT than the whole workforce—maybe Blacks are gaining ground in this STEM area.
