% Overhiring of Hispanics in Independent Federal Agencies (based on OPM's FY 2005 report)

          According to OPM's FY 2005 report, 5 of the 22 independent federal agencies exceeded their racial quotas for hiring Hispanics by 19% to 98% Down:

          Again this year, the First Place prize among Federal independent agencies in the Federal quota competition for hiring Hispanics goes to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) which hired 98.5% more Hispanics than EEOC's racial quota for Hispanics.

          And again this year the Last Place prize among Federal independent agencies in the quota competition for Hispanics was the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) which hired 80.5% fewer Hispanics than their racial quota.

          Overall, the five agencies that over hired Hispanics by the widest margins were (1st) EEOC at 98% more Hispanics than in the general population; (2nd) the Small Business Administration (SBA) at 46% more Hispanics than in the civilian population; (3rd) the Social Security Administration (SSA) at 37% more Hispanics than in the U.S. work force; (4th) the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) at 30% more Hispanics than the available work force; and (5th) the Broadcast Board of Governors (BBG) which hired 19% more Hispanics than available in the U.S. workforce.

          Most other preferred groups were over hired to a lesser extent than Hispanics in these agencies with the exception of blacks.

          OPM's FY 2005 report reveals that among the 18 federal executive departments, the newly formed U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was the clear winner in the Federal competition to hire as many Hispanics as possible.

          According to the OPM data, in FY 2005 the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security hired 100% more Hispanics than their proportion in the civilian labor force.

          For the second year in a row, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finished in a miserable last place for quotas:  HHS "under hired" Hispanics by -61% below their racial quota.  The Dept. of Commerce and the U.S. Navy receive honorable mention for "under hiring" Hispanics:  Commerce missed their Hispanic quota by -60%, and the U.S. Navy missed their Hispanic quota by -61%.

Five best executive departments for Hispanics
Blacks are not shown because their numbers are so large they distort the rest of this graph.
          The five "best" executive departments for over hiring Hispanics were DHS, HUD, Labor, Justice and Treasury.

          (1st) the Dept. of Homeland Security over hired Hispanics by 101% over their proportion in the civilian labor force.   (2nd) the Dep.t of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) over hired Hispanics by 9%.   (3rd) The U.S. Dept. of Labor over hired Hispanics by about 1%.  (4th) The U.S. Dept. of Justice missed their quota for Hispanics by -9%.  (5th) The U.S. Dept. of the Treasury missed their quota for Hispanics by -18%.

          Perhaps the most striking feature of this graph is the large extent to which the other preferred groups (excluding blacks) were "under hired" by the same five agencies compared to Hispanics.  What is it about these five agencies that seem to favor over hiring Hispanics over other preferred racial groups?
