A statistical anomaly or trend identified through data analysis or other means.

11 What is a Barrier to EEO? A policy, procedure, practice or condition that limits employment opportunities for members of a particular race, ethnic background, gender or because of disability. Some barriers may be easy to identify. Other barriers are embedded in the day-to-day procedures and practices of an agency and may appear neutral. 12 Examples of Barriers Decrease in NOAA employee population. Low or no participation in hiring women, minorities and persons with disabilities in agency leadership positions. Major decrease in women, minorities and person with disabilities in all major job categories. Lack of agency leaders commitment to a diverse workforce. 13
