I love it when states set big goals for themselves. In 2015, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) established the 60x30TX plan.
Finding a website rich in data is a dream for a quantitative-oriented person. In my recent article about Texas 2036, I wrote that the organization’s mission is “to enable Texans to make policy decisions through accessible data, long-term planning and state-wide engagement.” I reviewed the Texas 2036 site further and found a number of interesting data reports.
In 2036, Texas will celebrate its bicentennial. It’s estimated that Texas will add 10 million people to its current population of 29 million by then. Depending on whether or not California’s population continues to hold firm at 39.6 million or stagnates due to people leaving the state, Texas could be the most populous state in the U.S. in the future.
