The most egregious forms of institutional discrimination in the United States include racial discrimination, bias against African Americans, and discriminatory hiring practices.
The report found that the prevalence of institutional bias has risen sharply since 2014.
There are more instances of institutional racial bias than any other category, with white people more than four times more likely than people of color to be racially discriminated against.
According to the report, institutional racism is the most pervasive form of racism, affecting more than 6.6 million Americans.
The study did not break down the types of institutional and societal discrimination that are at the top of the list.
But the authors found that institutional racism was prevalent in areas with high concentrations of African Americans and Hispanics.
The authors found: “In 2015, more than six in 10 people with at least one college degree (62%) reported that they had experienced institutional racism in their lifetime.
Among black people, more people than whites (61%) reported experiencing institutional racism at some point in their lives.
Nearly three-quarters of white people (74%) reported institutional racism.
Black people were more likely to report experiencing institutional discrimination at a higher level than other racial or ethnic groups.”
In contrast, the report found there were fewer instances of racism directed at Hispanics, who comprised only 5.9% of the population.
But people of Hispanic descent were disproportionately affected by institutional racism, with more than 3.5% reporting being the target of such discrimination at some time in their life.
In the same period, more Latinos than whites were living in poverty, with Latino households accounting for 22% of all households in 2015.
The racial makeup of people’s communities is also a key factor, the study found, with blacks and Hispanics accounting for more than half of the communities in which whites lived.
Blacks were more than three times more than Latinos in the cities with the highest percentage of people who identified as black or Hispanic, and Hispanics were more in cities where whites were more predominant.
The researchers also found that racial disparities in educational attainment were not only more pronounced in states that were more segregated, but also in states with the most extreme forms of racism.
In 2016, nearly half of African American and Hispanic college students in the U.S. lived in households with at most one person of color, compared to just 3% of white students.
Hispanics were three times as likely as blacks to live in households where at least two people of other races lived.
In 2015, fewer than 1 in 5 African American students lived in a household where at most two people were of another race.
In contrast to the states with high levels of institutional, systemic racism, the authors also found significant differences in the racial makeup, socioeconomic status, and economic status of people in states where discrimination against African American people was more pervasive.
Racial and ethnic disparities also played a role in the prevalence and severity of institutional violence.
The national prevalence of domestic violence against women was 10 times higher among people of Mexican descent than white people in 2015, and black women were three to four times as often as white women to be victims of domestic abuse.
The severity of abuse was also higher for black women.
In one of the study’s more striking findings, it found that women who reported that their spouse had beaten or threatened them were twice as likely to be assaulted by their partner than women who did not report such abuse.
In other words, the degree of violence perpetrated by a spouse was more likely for people who did so to be reported by their spouse than those who did do not.
The lack of racial and ethnic diversity in the workplace also made a difference in people’s perceptions of racism in the work place.
Racial segregation is a significant factor in the high levels, and levels of, racial and gender discrimination that workers experience, the researchers found.
In states with higher levels of racial segregation, the prevalence rate of sexual harassment was six times higher than in states without that level of segregation, with Hispanic women being five times more affected.
In fact, the survey found that nearly half (48%) of white workers reported having experienced sexual harassment, and nearly three-fifths (45%) reported being victims of harassment.
While white women were the most likely group to report being the victims of sexual misconduct, African American women were also more likely.
In addition to experiencing racial and economic discrimination, people are also more frequently targeted for violence in their everyday lives, the findings found.
People in states in which more than 90% of residents were white reported experiencing at least six violent crimes per 100,000 residents in 2016, while people in more than 80% of states had more than 20 violent crimes reported per 100 in 2016.
Racial, ethnic, and cultural violence is also the primary source of conflict among people in the criminal justice system.
In 2017, there were more violent crimes against police officers than there were in states and localities where more than 70% of people of different races or ethnicities lived in the same communities.
This finding has been consistent for years
