The Institute for Demographic and Socioeconomic Research is a comprehensive institute for the examination of the determinants and consequences of demographic change. It is comprised of three components, including the Texas State Data Center, a state entity, which distributes demographic, economic, and related data and information to private and public sector clients in Texas and other parts of the nation. The Texas State Data Center directly serves more than 50,000 clients per year through a network of 45 affiliated agencies and provides services to an additional 4,500 clients per day who download more than two gigabytes of data each day from its website.
The Institute is also comprised of the Office of the State Demographer. This office produces population estimates for all places, counties, and the State of Texas, including annual and biennial projections of the population by age, sex, and race/ethnicity. These are used by the Texas Legislature, Texas state agencies, and numerous other governmental and private sector entities to plan for personnel, facility, and fiscal requirements.
The Institute performs contracted research in such areas as market area determination, site location, labor force and employment development, socioeconomic impact assessment, and a variety of other forms of demographic and socioeconomic analyses for private and public sector concerns.
Our mission is to stimulate and support excellent social, demographic and economic science research on significant practice and policy issues.
