The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission just released a handy searchable tool for each state and territory in the Unites States. Texas, though only making up approximately 8.3% of the U.S. population, makes up 10% of the EEOC claims.
Texas' EEOC filings have steadily risen during the three years of available data. During fiscal year 2009, they had 8,748 claims, or 9.4% of claims in the U.S. In 2010, they had 9,310, or 9.3%. For 2011, the numbers jumped to 9,952, or 10% of the nation's claims.
The data sets also provide numbers and percentages of types of claims. Out of the EEOC provided categories, these are the five most popular claims for 2011. Because some litigants claim multiple forms of discrimination, there may be people who are in multiple categories.
