          These agencies are the Smithsonian Institution and the Social Security Administration, the same two agencies which achieved First Place and Second Place in the federal competition to over hire Native Americans.

          The last place prize this year goes to the CSOS (Court Services and Offender Services) which under hired Native Americans by -88.9% below the CSOS quota for this minority.

          The second to last place prize this year is a dead heat between AID (Agency for International Development) and BBG (Broadcast Board of Governors) both of which managed to under hire Native Americans by -77.8% below their agencies' racial quotas for this minority.

          The five "best" agencies for hiring Native Americans based on racial quotas did not do that well in quota-based hiring of Women, Asian Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics. 

          The Smithsonian Institution deserves special mention here.  While the Smithsonian over hired Native Americans by 70% over their racial quota, the Smithsonian also "under hired" women of all races (at 8.6% below their quota).  The Smithsonian also "under hired" Asian Pacific Islanders by 42.2% below their quota.  Lastly, the Smithsonian also "under hired" Hispanics (of both genders) by 59.8% below their quota.

          What is it about the Smithsonian Institution that so strongly favors hiring Native Americans over Women, Asian Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics?

          6 of 18 federal executive departments exceeded their quota for hiring Native Americans.

          The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services continues to hold first place this year by exceeding their racial quota for Native Americans by an astounding 1,536%!!!   (Note: Two years ago, before the feds adjusted the racial figures based on the newer 2000 census, HHS over hired Native Americans by a whopping 3,240%)

          Honorable mention must go again this year to the U.S. Department of Interior who over hired Native Americans by 1,018% over their racial quota.  (Note:  two years ago, before the feds adjusted the racial figures based on the newer 2000 census data, Interior over hired Native Americans by 2,280% over their proportion in the civilian labor force.)

          Once again, this year the U.S. Department of State achieved "last place" in the quota competition to hire Native Americans by under hiring Native Americans by 70% below their racial quota.

Five best executive departments for Native Americans           The five best federal executive departments for exceeding their racial quotas for Native Americans were Health and Human Services (HHS), Interior, Agriculture, Energy, and Transportation.

          Notice how the other preferred racial / gender groups were mostly "under hired" at the same federal departments which over hired Native Americans.

          What is it about HHS, Interior, Agriculture, Engergy, and Transportation that causes them over hire Native Americans while "under hiring" women, Asian Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics?
