How diverse are our local newsrooms?

*The Census Bureau treats Hispanics as an ethnic group, but with help from our friend Gene Balk at The Seattle Times, we parsed the data to reflect Hispanics as a racial group.
(1) One person at GeekWire identifies as both Hispanic and White. (2) One person at Puget Sound Business Journal identifies as both Asian and Pacific Islander. (3) One person at Seattle Met identifies as both Hispanic and Black, another person identifies as both Hispanic and White. (4) The Seattle Times provided percentages that it reported to the 2015 American Society of News Editors report, which reflects the racial diversity of the newsroom in 2014. We converted those percentages into estimated numbers based on the current number of newsroom staff.
