  • Household and Labor Force Projections of Texas and its Counties

    The Texas Demographic Center periodically produces special projections focusing on selected household, socioeconomic, and health indicators. They are available at the state level and the county level. These projections utilize the latest TDC population projections and are intended as a means of understanding the potential impacts of population and demographic change on the State of Texas and its counties and regions.  We have recently released the Household Projections and the Labor Force Projections for the State of Texas and its counties for 2010 to 2050.

The latest brief from the Texas Demographic Center uses the recently released 2019 American Community Survey one-year summary file data to estimate Texas’s most vulnerable populations, their share of the population, and explore some of their pre-existing challenges, specifically around housing and food insecurity and health insurance status.
