Last update: Thursday 10/17/16 @9:20 am

Preliminary version 0.9 has been withdrawn. The final version 1.0 will be posted by 10/25/16. This version will be titled "Best States for Black, Hispanic, Asian American, and Female Tech". As per its title, the final version will distinguish between Asian American and foreign Asian tech professionals. It will examine the parity values of Asian American tech professionals. It will also correct an error in Version 0.9's handling of the data for Hispanic tech professionals. A  companion op-ed – “Why Are There So Many Foreign Asian Professionals in U.S. Tech?” – will offer a plausible answer to the question in its title.
