NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Every U.S. company with more than 100 employees is required to file a one-page form each year with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, an independent federal agency. Called the EEO-1, the form categorizes each company's U.S. workers by their self-identified race and gender.
As part of an investigation into Silicon Valley's diversity -- the subject of CNN's upcoming documentary The New Promised Land: Silicon Valley -- CNNMoney asked 20 tech industry leaders to release voluntarily their 2010 EEO-1 forms.
We contacted the tech industry's 10 largest companies by annual sales: Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Intel, Cisco, Ingram Micro, Amazon and Google.
We also asked for data from 10 smaller but influential companies: EBay, Netflix, Facebook, Groupon, Twitter, LinkedIn, Zynga, LivingSocial, Yelp and Hulu.
Seventeen companies refused to release their data. Three companies -- Intel (Fortune 500), Dell ( , Fortune 500) and Ingram Micro ( , Fortune 500) -- agreed to make their information publicly available. We used that information in reporting our story "Silicon Valley fights to keep its diversity data secret," and are publishing links below to the primary documents.,
