At Texas 2036, data informs our development of a long-term strategic framework and is used to monitor the resulting progress. Here are the ways we’re using data to ensure Texans have a better future.
Our Data Lab offers Texans unique and timely data visualization tools. Data sets include a wide range of topics, such as education & workforce, health & human services, infrastructure, demographics, natural resources, justice & safety, government performance and the economy.
Powered by Educational Results Partnership, our Education to Workforce Reporting Tool allows Texans to explore the data that links Texas public schools, public colleges, universities and our workforce to identify opportunities that will lead to student success.
Our data interactive story, “Come & Make It,” allows Texans to experience how our state’s demographics are changing and explore the key challenges related to water, transportation and education that Texas will need to get right over the coming decades.
Our state-wide performance indicators seek to highlight key factors in answering what makes our state the best place to live and work. Learn more about the most critical measures of success for our state’s future.
The US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey asks millions of people every year detailed questions about their social, economic, and demographic situations. Using this data, we mapped a diversity index—calculated by Axios—for every county in Texas. The percentages reflect the likely-hood of two people chosen at random being a different race or ethnicity from each other. For instance, if your county had a diversity index score of 52.5%, that would mean that there is about a 52% chance that two people selected at random would be of a different background.
