Abstract:

The conclusions from this analysis would appear to be that whites have been promoted faster than blacks and that neither education level nor AFQT category accounted for the black-white differences in speed of promotion. However, this does not eliminate the possibility of other variables or the interaction between several variables accounting for the differences. The findings about education level and AFQT as they relate to race and speed of promotion can be summarizes as follows Both blacks and whites of low education have been promoted faster than blacks and whites of medium education but not faster than blacks and whites of high education. Whites at all three levels of education have been promoted faster than blacks at the same level. High AFQT whites have been promoted faster than low AFQT whites. Low AFQT blacks have been promoted faster than high AFQT blacks however, there is evidence this trend is changing.
