Most US states collapse ethnicity into race in their reporting, obscuring uneven outcomes across distinct communities.

Lack of Data

There are well-known disparities between the social and economic outcomes of white and Black Latine groups.The same issue arises with corporate diversity data. The US form companies are required to use (EEO-1) asks them to match their employees to a limited subset of racial categories, with only one ethnicity category for "Hispanic." This makes tracking the diversity of tech companies relative to the overall population a difficult task. To accurately assess disparities in representation and outcomes, we need complete demographic data that treats race and ethnicity as separate but related data layers that can be used to pinpoint community needs.
