The Institute for Demographic and Socioeconomic Research (IDSER) is a comprehensive institute for the examination of the determinants and consequences of demographic change. Housed within IDSER is the Texas Demographic 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.
