The CCBC has been documenting books it receives annually by and about Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) since 1994. Before that, between 1985 and 1993, we documented books by and about Blacks only.
Beginning in 2018, we began to document the content of every book we receive. Also in 2018, we began to document additional aspects of identity in our analysis, including disability, LGBTQ+, and religion.
Below you’ll find links to the data we’ve published annually since 1985. Our Diversity Statistics FAQs provide additional history and essential context on how we do this analysis.
