Our Research

Through its Research Department, the Texas Census Institute performs and features policy-oriented research on U.S. Census and ACS data issues and their application to Texas.


The Research Department is led by a Research Committee and an Editorial Advisory Committee representing most regions and relevant Texas social issues.

Our research is organized into the following four projects.

Research Reports Series

Original manuscripts to support evidence-based policies and increase awareness of the accuracy of the U.S. Census and ACS.

Policy Brief Series

Original policy-relevant manuscripts that can be presented in a shorter format than that of our Research Report Series.

Research at a Glance

Infographics and one-page facts sheets derived from the Research Report Series and Policy Brief Series.

Data Visualization Tool

Interactive tool to explore the data from our Research Report Series and Policy Brief Series.
