Texas Demographic Conference

TDC Staff

Thank you for being a part of the 2023 Texas Demographic Conference.

We are truly grateful for your presence and hope you found the content informative and the networking fruitful. We are delighted to share that we had a remarkable turnout, with over 100 individuals registering for the in-person conference. Our panel of esteemed speakers provided valuable insights into the ongoing dynamic population changes in our state.

A special appreciation goes to Robert Santos, Director of the U.S. Census Bureau for spending time with our affiliate members and serving as our keynote speaker. The presentations from Census Bureau staff covered various topics, including Population Estimates, Demographic and Housing data release, 2020 Census Urban Areas, and the U.S. Economic Census.

Alongside Dr. Potter's insightful State of the State presentation on Texas demographic trends, we were privileged to have presentations from Texas-based organizations. The Texas Census Institute shed light on the 2020 Census Undercount, the Texas Department of Information Resources introduced the Texas Open Data Portal, and the Texas Natural Resources Information System shared information on their resources.

For those who couldn't attend or wish to revisit the content, we are pleased to announce that the conference presentations are now available.

We hope that you found the program informative and engaging. We eagerly anticipate your participation in next year's conference. As we secure a date and location for our 2024 event, we will update this conference page accordingly. We look forward to seeing you next year!
