County Data

County Information Project
The Texas Association of Counties' County Information Program (CIP) is a central clearinghouse for county-related information. Partnerships with the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the Texas State Data Center and other agencies provide much of the raw data, which CIP then turns into comprehensible information.
CIP regularly answers questions using data on hand, such as "What counties are comparable to mine based upon population, geographic size, tax rates, etc.?" A large part of this information is available on the Association's website. The CIP can also prepare custom reports and maps at the request of county officials, the legislature, state and federal agencies and individuals.

New Items

2014 Salary Survey. The 2014 survey of county officials' salaries is now available on-line. This is the entire document showing salaries for all elected county officials and the county auditors. We only publish this document in even numbered years, which means there will NOT be a 2015 edition.

The survey form for the 2014 TAC Salary Survey is still available in MS Excel format (.xlsx) and MS Excel 97-2003 format (.xls). Please save the file to your computer BEFORE entering any data! Some people may experience a problem opening the file in MS Internet Explorer 11. If asked for a user name and password, simply click the cancel button and try again. The second time, click "Save As" instead of "Open" and you should be able to save the file to your computer and then open it.

​Here's a map showing which counties returned a completed survey form.
