2017 Central Health Demographic Report

The 2017 Central Health Demographic Report is a tool designed to assist all governmental, non-profit, and private entities serving Travis County’s safety net population.

The Demographic Report provides detailed analysis of Travis County’s populations, with particular focus on those living at or below the federal poverty level. In addition, the report provides five-year projections of where and how the county’s population is expected to change. Details include census tract-level analysis of:

  • Race/ethnicity
  • Age
  • Gender
  • Families in poverty
  • Health care providers
  • Availability of public transportation
  • Households without vehicles
  • Availability of subsidized public housing

The Demographic Report also provides analysis of where the patients served by Central Health reside, and where they are receiving care. Combined, this data enables a broad understanding of the many needs experienced by low-income residents, from health care to housing to transportation and more.

Highlights of the Demographic Report include:
