TDCG: Demographic Profile of the Texas Hill Country

Hamilton Pool

The Texas Hill Country is well known for its beautiful landscapes and friendly people. Current predictions estimate
that the hill country's regional population will double in the next 20 years. Proper planning is required to ensure that
this land will not lose its unique cultural and physical identity. A demographic profile reveals characteristics of the
people living in the region and various changes that occur over time.

The implementation of GIS and census analyses provide a much better understanding of the inhabitants of the hill
country. The use of current and past census data in a GIS provides the ability to create maps that show the change
in demographics throughout the Texas Hill Country over time. Understanding past and current spatial trends can
assist planners who are working to preserve this wonderful part of Texas for generations to come.
