A short analysis on the ASA Directory at http://www.amstat.org/membership/directory/search.cfm
There are 15904 Total Members out of which if broken done by Race/Color
- 172 Minority Statisticians
- 68 Black
- 12 Hispanic (this looks too less so I suspect the directory is incomplete)
Even optimistically the color of statisticians is overwhelmingly as follows (assuming that minority data is under counted by 10X- so multiplying the minority data by 10 and then taking percentage)
89 % White
4 % Black and
7% Non Black Minorities (presumably Indian, Chinese, Hispanic).
I tried to find some statistics on fresh maths/stats graduates by race but did not find some. Surely this calls for some thought ?
