local law student popping in to say that (AFAIK) racial distribution in the workplace (legally) has to equal racial distribution in the applicant pool, not in the general population.

oh, great. thanks!

I knew it was often the applicant pool, I didn't know if it was always the applicant pool. is the same true for college student enrollment (as opposed to employment)?

Again AFAIK, the measuring stick is also the applicant pool in the academic environment (here's some info about the University of Michigan's policy, which was recently upheld by the Supreme Court):

this makes recruiting efforts important, so you don't end up with a "chilling effect": certain minorities believing there's no way they'll get admitted based on race, therefore not applying, therefore not being part of the applicant pool.
