U.S. Census Bureau

Texas County Populations from the 2010 Redistricting Data. Redistricting data is slightly different than the "normal" data from the Census. This is due to how certain people are counted. For example, military members serving overseas are counted as residing at their home of record for redistricting purposes only. Therefore, the data that is released later may differ from the redistricting data found in this table.
