From the Document: "As the U.S. population has become more diverse, many media companies have come to recognize the importance of employing a diverse workforce and reflecting diverse perspectives on screen and in print. However, news reports, studies, and policymakers have raised ongoing questions about racial and ethnic diversity in the media industry, including for Hispanic workers. [...] To describe representation of Hispanics within the media industry, we analyzed workforce data from the annual American Community Survey (ACS) Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) from the Census Bureau and from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) annual Employer Information Reports (EEO-1)."
