I have recently posted a new paper to SSRN (co-authored with my friends and colleagues, Bob Nelson and Ryon Lnacaster). It still needs work (and I am happy to get comments, please). The “exclusive” quality is that (as I have said before) it reveals the demographic characteristics of the title VII cases filed in federal courts which you cannot get unless you draw a random sample of federal court filings — we have recently completed this . It took about 3 years and tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars .
There is some refining of models to do (event history models versus what we have here) but the changes will not be significant as to outcomes. So, before you click, ask yourself, “what is the most common title VII claim – race, sex, national origin, or religion?’ Also, what percentage of cases involve a claim of sexual harassment? You can guess here or read the paper.
