Demographically speaking, Austin continues to experience profound change.  Keeping up with how these demographic shifts affect the City is essential to successful operations and planning.  This page acts as a portal to a large collection of demographic maps and a wide array of demographic data. 

Austin's demographic story continues to revolve around the three major themes of: 1) rapid and sustained job and population growth; 2) transformative demographic diversification; 3) and, stubborn structural and spatial socioeconomic separations.
