What accounts for differences among agencies in the percentage of jobs held by women and minorities and the growth rates in their employment shares? This article explores new evidence from panel data on the extent to which interagency differences in the employment of women and minorities are systematically related to the distribution of occupations within an agency and an agency's demographic and organizational characteristics. Some findings from earlier research are confirmed by this study, but there are also several important differences between results obtained in this analysis and those obtained earlier from standard cross-sectional approaches.
