Diversity Focus Announces Results from the 2013 Creative Corridor Community Survey
Date:5/23/2013

Cedar Rapids, IA (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Diversity Focus announced today that in 2013 more people in the Creative Corridor have an expanded understanding of diversity. The results come from the 2013 Creative Corridor Community Survey. The survey was done from February-March of this year. 1198 qualified residents took part. The non-profit organization conducted the survey as a follow up to its benchmark survey in 2008.

In both 2008 and 2013, the two top factors reported in the definition of diversity were race and ethnicity. But the numbers were statistically much higher this year for people defining diversity also as age, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, religion, gender and disability.

The biggest takeaway from the survey was the top 6 areas of concern for people when it comes to discrimination. Overall, employment was the key discrimination issue across the board for all communities including women, LGBT, disabled, African American and Latino.

An interesting note from the 2013 survey when it came to the top areas of concern was when it came to discrimination with law enforcement officers or other government officials. That number came down to 16% overall. It had been at 19% in the 2008 study.

But the numbers were also very striking when it came to discrimination at a store or in a restaurant. The African American community had 86% of respondents who reported experiencing discrimination sometimes or frequently when it came to retail. 50% of Latinos reported experiencing discrimination at a store or in a restaurant.

The other communities had interesting numbers as well. Thirty-six percent of the disabled community reported experiencing discrimination in the public schools, 46% of the LGBT respondents reported discrimination in the workplace. Women’s top concern was also employment followed by discrimination in the public schools.
