Assessing Organizational Diversity with the Smith and Wilson Indices

Assessing Organizational Diversity with the Smith and Wilson Indices provides a comprehensive and systematic assessment of the application of Simpson-based diversity indices to the workplace. It offers human resources practitioners and researchers in the nonprofit, private, and public sectors a hands-on guide on how to measure demographic and organizational diversity with the Hussein and Khan, Ray and Singer, Smith and Wilson, and Wilcox evenness indices. Examples of the application of the indices to employment data are provided throughout the book, while the text also illustrates the use of ordinary least squares, quantile, ridge, robust, and Tobit, regression methods to assess how organizational and workplace factors influence age, ethnicity, gender, and organizational diversity.
