Job categories by race and gender

These graphs have some additional breakdowns of the categories. But the major trends are obvious. Educated professionals regardless of race, continue to do well. Asians have the highest percentage of professionals followed by Whites. Blacks and Hispanics, especially men, have a way below average number of professionals. The lack of professionals shows up in the high unemployment numbers during the current recession. Gender wise it also show the huge impact the recession is having on men.

The charts also show how Blacks and Hispanics are concentrated in service occupations which pay far less then professional occupations.

In the year-to-year delta graphs you can actually see the shrinking of manufacturing and constructions jobs.
