The 2016 Texas Demography Conference will be held on May 17th - 18th in Austin Texas.
Please plan to join us in Austin where the program will focus on significant demographic trends and drivers of demographic change.
Texas has experienced unprecedented population growth in the early 21st century, adding more than six million residents since 2000.
Domestic migration has been a key source of this growth. In recent years, Texas has become the number one destination for the nation’s domestic migrants.
Between 2005 and 2013, 4.8 million people moved to Texas from other states.
The U.S. Census Bureau is currently hiring nearly 700 enumerators and local supervisors for the 2016 Census Test in Harris County, Texas. Temporary full-time and part-time positions are now available. [More Information]
Based on the size and composition of its foreign-born population, Texas is more international now than at any time since its statehood in 1845. By 2013, more than one of every 10 foreign-born persons in the United States resided in Texas. Both international and domestic migration are fueling the growth of the foreign-born population in Texas. [View Report]
Recent Census data suggest a new pattern of immigration is emerging in Texas. Traditionally, Texas immigration has been dominated by people originating in Latin America, particularly Mexico. Following the 2007-2009 recession, immigration from Mexico has declined sharply. In 2005, 56.8 percent of all non-citizen immigrants originated in Mexico. By 2013, Mexican-origin immigrants made up only 27.1 percent of all non-citizen immigrants. [View Report]
