Do I need to update my mailing information if it has not changed?
No, if the current mailing information is correct there is no need to update it.
If there were no boundary changes (annexation/detachments) in the year requested do I need to return the survey?
Yes, we need an official survey on file stating that fact. Please check the appropriate box and return the survey.
I use to get a survey form for every county our city was located in. How come I only received one survey form this year?
We have redesigned our form now only one form is needed. All your counties changes can be listed on the one form.
What is the difference between consolidated/merged and been annexed by?
Two places will agree to consolidate/merge into one larger place. Where generally in an annexation one place is over taken by another
You ask for a legal description of each annexed or boundary change. Why?
In many instances we can gather missing information from the documentation. If you have filled out the form fully (no blank spaces)
and the annexed population is less than 100 there is no need to attach the documentation.
Why do you need to know the County in which the change took place?
We produce our population estimates and projections for the State of Texas by Place and County; therefore, if your City is in several
counties we need to know which County to increase the population in.
Why do you need to know the estimated population in each area annexed/detached?
If the area you annexed/detached had a population we need to adjust your cities population by that amount. If you do not know that
estimated population but, do know the number of housing units we can calculate the estimated population based on the 2010 census count
for your city and county.
Why do you need to know the housing units?
The occupied housing units helps us verify the population of the annexed/detached area. If you do not know that estimated population
but, do know the number of housing units we can calculate the estimated population based on the 2010 census count for your city and
