Nearly one in three jobs created at the 10 companies between 1996 and 2000 went to Asian workers. * In 2000, about one in 10 employees were either black or Latino. * China, India, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan produce about 600,000 science and engineering graduates each year, nearly three times as many as the United States, according to the National Science Foundation. Asians also earn nearly 8 percent of the bachelor's degrees in all science and engineering fields from U.S. universities, although they comprise less than 4 percent of the nation's population. * In 2000, for example, the employment data shows that 46 Asian employees were in sales, compared with 43 blacks, 48 Latinos -- and 1,957 whites.

African Americans' participation in the technology work force dropped to 8.2 percent in 2002 from 9.1 percent in 1996, according to the ITAA report.

African Americans represented 10.9 percent of the total U.S. work force in 2002. The percentage of Hispanic Americans in IT jobs jumped to 6.3 percent in 2002 from 5.4 percent in 1996.
