Applicant flow data is the analysis of selection rate variances for a particular job among classifications. All institutions receiving federal contracts are obligated by federal law to track gender and race data for all candidates submitting applications for employment to the business. By law, the information cannot be a component of the employment determination, nor can it be used for consideration. It is solely for record keeping and statistical purposes. Applicant flow data is an essential tool for analyzing the inclusiveness and integrity of the federal government’s recruitment goals. Employers must provide applicants the option to decline to submit the supplemental classification information.
