Home > Texas Demographic Conference > Current Conference

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, like many others, we had to cancel our in-person Texas Demographic Conference this year. However, this new “normal” has made us all into virtual meeting experts. So we’re going digital!

We will be hosting a series of webinars starting Monday, July 27 to Wednesday July 29, 2020. We have partnered with the Census Bureau to bring you three half day sessions with programming on topics, such as the 2020 Census, new Census Bureau data products, balancing data privacy and disclosure avoidance, and, of course, Texas demographics. Join us for one session, one afternoon, or for the entire program!

We hope you will join us for the Texas Demographic Center Webinar Series. The Texas Demographic Conference provides opportunities to learn about and discuss current demographic issues, how and where to access and use demographic data, renew acquaintances and meet others who share your interests. Know a demography geek? Pass this on.

Annual conference hosted by the Texas Demographic Center.
