HOUSTON – Dr. Stephen Klineberg, Ph.D., has been taking the pulse of the Houston area for 40 years through the Houston area survey that started at Rice University.

The survey results became so popular for leaders in business and politics that it is now a part of the annual efforts of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research for which Klineberg is the founding director.

This year’s survey was particularly important as it highlighted changes in attitudes in the greater Houston area after a year of pandemic.

Among this year’s findings:

  • Minority groups hit especially hard
  • More government involvement welcomed
  • More tolerance for undocumented immigrants

Dr. Klineberg is a guest on this week’s Houston Newsmakers with Khambrel Marshall. See the full interview there and more in this week’s Houston Newsmakers EXTRA.
