Statements about Census

More "25- to 34-year-olds are moving to Austin than any other city in America."

Federal law requires residents to participate in the U.S. government’s American Community Survey.

Says close to 90 percent of the population growth in Texas over the last decade was non-Anglo.

"Sometime in the next decade, there will be more Latinos in the state of Texas than there are Anglos. That will happen sometime in the next five to eight to ten years."

Says Houston’s 18th congressional district has been “gentrified” and is home to “more Anglos than African Americans.”

Says state's expected "increase in federal political clout is almost entirely due to the growth of the African American and Hispanic populations in Texas in virtually every region of the state.”

"An audit of the last census found that over 370,000 people living in Texas were not counted, and our state lost an estimated $1 billion in federal funds as a result."

"Inequality in Texas is steadily getting worse, with very few rich people, a great many poor people, and fewer and fewer in the middle."

"More than 1,000 people ... move to Texas every day."
