Supplementary notes

* The source adds the following information regarding methodology:

"Between November 2016 and December 2017, we applied to nearly 3200 jobs advertised online on a popular recruitment platform, using resumes and cover letters of fictitious job applicants that randomly varied on a number of characteristics, including their ethnic minority status. We then tracked the responses received from employers and, in line with the standard protocol of field experiments, politely declined any invitation to job interviews or requests to provide additional information saying that we were no longer interested in the job. All applicants had four years of relevant work experience and were qualified for the jobs on offer. The occupations we considered in the field experiment (cook, store assistant, payroll and admin clerk, receptionist, marketing assistant and sale representative, software engineer) vary with regard to required skills, qualifications and level of customer contact."
