Availability Estimates and Utilization Analysis For Non-Faculty Job Groups For non-faculty job groups, data from the 2000 Census data was used as the source for raw statistics on the availability of women and minorities in the population and labor market. Depending on the usual recruitment area for the specific job group, statistics for local (Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire Counties), state/regional (New England states), or national levels were used. Availability estimates obtained though the utilization analysis process are also influenced by the composition of the University’s workforce, as the presence of promotable and transferable women and minorities within the organization is factored into the overall determination of availability.
Statistics on the utilization of minorities and women among non-faculty employees is reported in Table 5, Non-Faculty Utilization Report. This table displays the current composition of the workforce with respect to the total number of employees, the number and percentage female, and the number and percentage of minority group members; the availability estimate for female and minority workers (percentage basis), the shortfall between current utilization and the availability estimate (percentage basis), and the determination of whether or not underutilization exists Overall, the workforce was found to meet utilization standards for minorities in 25 out of 37 (67.6%) non-faculty job groups. Minorities were utilized in three out of four Executive, Administrative & Managerial (EAM) job groups. Minorities were underutilized in EAM C (which includes associate and assistant deans and other executive level administrators); the shortfall here for minorities was 9.7%. Minorities were underutilized in three Professional/Non-Faculty job groups as follows: Institutional Relations (shortfall=3.1%); Medical Care (shortfall=11.3%); and Technical (shortfall=4.1%). Minorities were underutilized in two Secretarial/Clerical job groups:
