About the BIDC

The Business and Industry Data Center (BIDC) program is an ongoing initiative of the U.S. Census Bureau to make economic data and statistics more widely available at the state and local levels. The Texas Department of Economic Development participates in this program through agreements with the U.S. Census Bureau and the State Data Center at The University of Texas at San Antonio. TDED’s participation in the BIDC program provides the most cost effective way to deliver the economic research and data services required under Texas Government Code 481.211-212, as state participation in the Census Bureau’s program requires no direct outlay of state funds. (The Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis provide data to participants at no cost.)

State law requires TDED to share and exchange data and statistics with other agencies and organizations in order to facilitate easier access by the general public. With the assistance of the State Data Center at Texas A&M, TDED has developed formal relationships with agencies and organizations around the state that can help us in our efforts to provide Texas businesses and communities with economic data services.

All of the organizations affiliated with the BIDC program maintain a depository of economic data (in print and electronic formats) from the U.S. Bureau of the Census and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. As the BIDC lead agency, the Texas Department of Economic Development is a one-stop source for all types of economic data. The BIDC affiliates may also provide information and/or value-added data products to their target customers within their particular areas of economic expertise as indicated below.
