​​​​SAN ANTONIO – A new Texas Landowner Changes and Trends report addresses the fragmentation of rural working lands, an increasing population, and changes in landowner demographics. 

“The goal of this report is to describe the state’s growing population and the data relating to rural lands,” said Dr. Roel Lopez, director of the Natural Resources Institute, part of the Texas A&M University System. “Using several datasets, we have also evaluated a number of demographics among landowners of privately owned rural working lands.”

The report addresses landowner age, intergenerational land transfer, operator gender, landowner residency, and more from 1997 to 2012.
