Ok, This should not come as a surprise to anyone... It confirms what most of us have known about this business for a long time.
SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Women and some racial minorities are "significantly underrepresented" in the U.S. technology industry, according to a new study from the industry's trade group.
Women made up 32 percent of the tech work force in 2004, a drop from 41 percent at its peak in 1996. That's largely because of the shrinking number of administrative jobs in the tech industry, the Arlington, Virginia-based Information Technology Association of America said.
Hispanics were the most underrepresented racial group, according to the ITAA's analysis of data from U.S. Department of Labor.
Hispanics made up 13 percent of the U.S. labor pool but only 6.4 percent of the tech work force, an underrepresentation of more than 50 percent. Still, the numbers have improved since 1996, when Hispanics made up a scant 5.3 percent.
