Texas State Data Center
The Texas State Data Center (TxSDC) and the Office of the State Demographer function as a liason to the U.S. Census Bureau. The Texas State Data Center disseminates population data from the Census as well as maintains its own set of population estimates and projections. The Center for Health Statistics uses a combination of TxSDC generated estimates and projections in calculations. Information about the specific data sources used by CHS is maintained in the webpage titled "Sources and Updates".
There are two systems maintained by the TxSDC for retrieving estimates and projections. The estimates data tool provides age detailed data for all years of estimates. The projection data tool provides age detailed data for all years for which projections are released (currently 2000-2040).
