The Greater Houston Partnership will host Dr. Stephen L. Klineberg, co-director, Institute for Urban Research (IUR), and professor of sociology, Rice University, as he releases the findings of the 29th annual Houston Area Survey. This marks the inaugural release of the survey since finding a permanent home in the newly created Institute for Urban Research.
The 2010 Houston Area Survey will continue last year’s focus on shifts in the attitudes, perceptions and demographic make-up of Houstonians which reflect an increasingly diverse and tolerant population. These findings played a key role in the decision by GHP to focus on community alignment as it advocates for regional business issues this year.
Conducted in the early spring of every year since 1982, the survey is the nation’s longest running study of any metropolitan area. It provides an objective and continually updated assessment of the economic and demographic changes that have been taking place in Houston and reveals what Houston-area residents think about the ongoing trends.
