BISMARCK (UTN) - The State of North Dakota employs a little over 100 people who identify as Native American.
As of June 30, 2012, (the most recent reporting period) North Dakota employed 41 full-time male and 43 full-time female Native Americans in the state's classified service.
The figures come from the state's EEO-4 Report covering the one-year period from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012.
At the time there were 6,831 full-time employees. With 84 self-identifying as Native American, they represent 1.23 percent of North Dakota State employees.
The report also says there were 14 male and 14 female 'other than full-time employees' who identified as Native among a total of 489 with that status, for 2.25 percent.
The report also lists state employee job categories and annual salary ranges.
