Hispanics in Federal Government Continue Ascent

Washington, D.C. - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management's Sixth Annual Report to the President on Hispanic Employment in the Federal Government shows Hispanics continue to represent an increasingly greater share of the nation's civil servants. The Report indicates while overall employment in the 1.6 million strong permanent Federal workforce dipped last year by more than 10,000 employees, the number of Hispanics among the nation's civil servants grew by more than 1,000, to more than 126,000.
