I’ve used the Census Bureau’s American FactFinder for data about Texas, the U.S. generally and other states for years. Did you know the website will be decommissioned in 2020?
Per the Census Bureau: “As of July 1, 2019 data.census.gov is now the primary way to access Census Bureau data, including the latest releases from the 2018 American Community Survey and 2017 Economic Census and the upcoming 2020 Census and more. American FactFinder will be decomissioned (sic) in 2020.”
This is such an incredibly rich site of facts about Texas, and part of why the upcoming 2020 Census is so important — we rely on accurate and accessible data to make decisions about everything from roads and schools to legislative districts and health care.
