Note: These tables exclude 138 faculty with missing sex data. To allow for unduplicated counts of faculty, the "Multiple Race – Hispanic" break–out includes all faculty who are reported as Hispanic and at least one other race. The "Multiple Race – Non–Hispanic" break–out includes all faculty who are reported as more than one race, but who are not reported as Hispanic. Source: AAMC Faculty Roster, December 31, 2015 snapshot
