Annotation: The report describes trends in the California Youth Authority's (YA's) Affirmative Action Program, adopted in 1974, during the 12-month period ending March 31, 1981. Comparative data are presented to show the ethnic distribution of the YA ward population for the period.
Abstract: Data were gathered from the YA's internal reporting system, from State personnel board records, and from the State's research division. The proportion of minorities among total YA personnel showed a gain of 3.7 percent. There was an increase of 0.6 percent for women. Blacks composed 20 percent of the work force, or 0.4 percent below the YA's affirmative action goals; Spanish surnamed were 14.4 percent of the workforce, or 0.7 percent above the annual goal; and Asians were 0.7 percent above the goal. Data are also given for Native Americans, Filipinos, and others. Tables and a list of YA job titles are included.
