County Data

County Information Project
The Texas Association of Counties' County Information Program (CIP) is a central clearinghouse for county-related information. Partnerships with the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the Texas State Data Center and other agencies provide much of the raw data, which CIP then turns into comprehensible information.
CIP regularly answers questions using data on hand, such as "What counties are comparable to mine based upon population, geographic size, tax rates, etc.?" Much of this information is available from the links below. The CIP can also prepare custom reports and maps at the request of county officials, the legislature, state and federal agencies and individuals.
