Supplementary notes

*The 2022 survey refers to 30,314 individuals employed by the 328 museums involved in the study. The 2015 survey included 22,602 employees from 276 museums and the 2018 study analyzed 30,222 employees from 336 museums.

In 2022, the number of respondents per ethnicity was as follows: White = 17,172; Hispanic = 3,357; Black = 3,110; Asian = 1,933; two or more races = 1,126; American Indian or Alaskan Native = 126; Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander = 68; Middle Eastern = 35; declined to state = 3,225. The source did not include "decline to state" responses in graphs that analyze the ethnicity.

Missing percentage points to 100 percent/percentage points exceeding 100 percent are probably due to rounding.
