The use indices for each administration can be combined

to form a composite use index for all of DOL.

In effect,

the use indices measure the extent to which the Department

has successfully achieved the standards of minority employ

ment set in the "Goals and Timetables" section--an equitable

representation and distribution of all employees in the

National Office and Field units of every administration.

It should be recalled that the Department-wide analysis

[blocks in formation]

that an administration or region is four-fifths of the way

[blocks in formation]

of blacks, .89, while ESA, BLS, and SOL all have indices

below .70.

The composite use index which reflects the total

amount of underutilization in the Department is .75, mean

ing the Department is only three-quarters of the way toward

achieving the full utilization of blacks.

(Chart 3, p. 24 ).

Although the National Office taken as one unit meets

the criteria for the representation of blacks, the analysis

by administration reveals that the National Office units

of BLS and SOL do not have an equitable representation of

blacks.

In the field, only MA and LMSA have a sufficient

representation of blacks in the professional ranks.

In

addition, blacks are inequitably distributed in every admin

istration in the National Office and the Field (with the

possible exception of MA in the Field where the average

salary of black professionals is .97 of that for all pro

fessionals).

The most inequitable distributions of these

employees are found in the National Office units of LMSA

and SOL where the salary differences between black and all

professionals are 34 percent and 38 percent, respectively.

(Charts 3-5, pp. 24-26 ).

Two regions, Philadelphia and Chicago, demonstrate a

reasonably good utilization of blacks in their professional
