SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple's high-paying technology jobs are primarily filled by white and Asian men, just like its industry peers.

A breakdown released Tuesday by Apple Inc. showed 54 percent of the company's technology jobs in the U.S. are handled by whites and another 23 percent by Asians. Men make up 80 percent of Apple's technology workforce throughout the world.

Apple CEO Tim Cook expressed his dissatisfaction with the lack of diversity in a letter posted alongside the data. He also highlighted the ways that the world's most valuable company is trying to be more inclusive.

The scarcity of women, blacks and Latinos employed in computer programming and other technology jobs at Apple mirrors the situations previously disclosed at other major Silicon Valley companies such as Google Inc., Yahoo Inc. and Facebook Inc.
