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.
