Hu Index of Diversity (c) Arthur Hu This is a text file index to Arthur Hu's research files and writing. I put this together so that I could easily get at all the statistics and articles that I've filed, but it's comprehensive enough to be of general use if you can get used to it. It has fragments of data that can be detailed enough that you don't have to go any farther, or you can use the pointers to ask for files, or look up sources elsewhere. For internet resources, see http://www.arthurhu.com/index/internet.htm Files under \priv (\priv\95\14) are often copyrighted or private as opposed to files under \doc (\doc\95\12). You can read them under "fair use" as in a library, but not distribute them without permission. I don't yet have enough web space to put everything on line, but, time permitting, I will email you up to 3 files that you want for free as text, or mime attachments In some cases, an entry will give a complete citation, and a complete data table. In other cases, you'll find a file name like \doc\95\14\data.wk1 which gives the location in my own hard drive (much like the date of a newspaper or magazine). Usually there will be at least a summary that looks like W1.00 B2.00 H3.00 A-2.00 This means that I've computed an "index", which means either dividing a statistic by the figure for whites, or comparing a percentage of something, like engineers, with the population, and then comparing with the corresponding rate for whites. Thus instead of trying to figure out whether or not 20 per 100,000 or $13,220 is good or bad, it is immediately compared with the figure for the "leading brand" since doing worse is considered grounds for complaining, but doing equal or better generally means there's nothing to worry about. If you get the original spreadsheet file, the formulas handle this. If you see something like W(1.10) 1.00, it means that whites were 10% above their population, or the rate for all groups, in case whites are substantially different that the entire population, and you want to use the entire population instead of whites as the norm. I've just broken these files down into hyperlinked pieces, but some are still up to 120k bytes long, so you'd be better off downloading it with ftp or something like WebWhacker (look it up on Alta Vista, its good, but not free) so that you can get it from your local machine.

Conventions: This is organized as a big linear index, with
subsections. Each section starts with a different "tag" with
=> as the top level, going alphabetical from there. So to
find Cancer, you'd look for =>ASIAN AMERICAN, then @@health
and then %%cancer, or keep looking for cancer.

Index Levels - how to search for next level with a
text editor like emacs or vi, or even Netscape

Under windows, you can use copy the name to the clipboard
and then use ^V to enter the name in the file open box for
a text editor, or Excel spreadsheet.
