EEOC Study -- in sample

Professors Pauline Kim, Margo Schlanger, and Andrew Martin received a grant from the National Science Foundation to collect and analyze data on federal court litigation brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The research involves collaboration between the Center for Empirical Research in the Law, at Washington University in St. Louis, and the Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal agency charged with enforcing the laws against sex, race, age, religion and disability discrimination in the workplace, and a significant part of its work involves filing suit and seeking redress through the federal court system. The EEOC Litigation Analysis project involves a systematic study of the litigation activities of the EEOC and the agency's outcomes over a 10 year period of time. The sample includes all the large cases brought by the EEOC from 1997 to 2006, and about half of the more individual cases; over 2300 cases in total.

For the data collected by the study and much more information about it, see Equal Employment Litigation Project, and Kim, Schlanger, Boyd, & Martin, How Should We Study District Judge Decision-Making, 29 Wash. U. J. L. & Pol'y 83 (2009). The results of the study are not yet available.
