We looked at California (CA) college admissions data and income data to analyze the effects of race-neutral college admissions.


The data collected for this project was sourced from publicly available, government databases.

Our team cleaned and visualized the data to glean insights around what changes can be seen in racial and ethnic demographics in college admissions post-Prop. 209 and employment earnings trends can be seen across racial and ethnic demographics.

Between 1996 and 2000, although there was a 15% and 16% increase of minority students overall within the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) systems, respectively, enrollment of Black and Native American students notably decrease.

From 2006 to 2010, the number of Black students continued to decrease, but Asian and Latino students steadily increased during this period.

Changes in employment and earnings varied across racial and ethnic groups.
