Examination of the two sets of whole job rankings will also yield information on the equality of jobs including supervisory duties. The : rankings were computed by multiplying the stack number by 20 and adding

the rank within the stack. Conseqụently, jobs with a lower rank are : --- stronger jobs. .....-----------

.... Table 6 shows the nean whole job ranking's assigned by classifiers and · GAO managers for both samples. A similar pattern of results to the fore

going analyses can be seen. Females and minority persons have somewhat.. .. weaker jobs although, as before, the differences are not statistically

work experiences as white males. However, there is a consistent pattern of somewhat lower job responsibilities among nonwhites and females. while this situation has not yet reached significant levels, it warrants further monitoring.

• The methodology used here has some potential as an unobtrusive way of detecting subtle differences in assigned job responsibilities. Because the data was collected for a different purpose, it was not subject to being shaded in a particular direction. Also, since the questionnaires were
