The independent variables analyzed were gender, race, salary, civil service, and years of service. The dependent variable was management position. The sample size consisted of 452 commissioned and non-commissioned employees from the west, east, upper-east, and middle regions of the state of Tennessee. The data analyzed was secondary data from records acquired from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Spearman's Rho correlation statistic was used to measure the impact of the independent variables. These independent variables were found to be significant in reference to management positions.^
