Adverse-Impact Report

Adverse Impact and the "four-fifths rule." - A selection rate for any race, sex, or ethnic group which is less than four-fifths (4/5ths) (or eighty percent) of the rate for the group with the highest rate will generally be regarded by the Federal enforcement agencies as evidence of adverse impact.

Chi-Square Report

Standard-Deviation Report

The difference between the proportion of the protected class and the proportion of all has a normal distribution with a mean and standard deviation. The statistic is shown below:
           (r / n) - p            
  sqrt(p * (1-p) / n) * sqrt(1-q) 

Confidence Interval Report

The proportion of the protected class has an expected value that would fall within a specified confidence interval. The statistic is shown below:
Observed value = (r / n)
Expected value = p
Standard Deviation = sqrt(p * (1-p) / n) * sqrt(1-q)

Confidence Interval:
Lower Bound = p - 1.96 * Std Dev
Upper Bound = p + 1.96 * Std Dev
