Greater Houston partnership's houston facts is here!


BY Alex Wang [ October 29, 2009 at 13:47:56 ]

HOUSTON – Houston Facts 2009, the latest in the Greater Houston Partnership’s popular annual compendia of facts and figures about the 10-county region, is fresh off the press.

Covering a broad range of topics in 80 pages replete with color photos, Houston Facts 2009 has more information than ever before.

The first publication to bear the title Houston Facts was a simple brochure published by the Houston Chamber of Commerce, a predecessor of the Partnership, in 1959, but similar annual pamphlets presenting straightforward facts about the area date back to 1906.

“When I assumed responsibility for developing the content of Houston Facts in 1974,” said Partnership economic research manager Skip Kasdorf, “it had grown to four pages. Budget constraints kept it at that size for several years, during which we resorted to ever-smaller type to cram more information into it.

“The job of Houston Facts has always been to answer the most common questions about this region,” he continued. “Once it became possible to increase the number of pages, we began answering more questions, including some that people should have asked but seldom did. Today, Houston Facts draws on more than 300 individual data sources to present useful data and information on an exceptionally broad array of subjects.”

A few samples of what you’ll find in the 2009 Houston Facts:

· Houston, with more residents than Maryland or Wisconsin, is the sixth most populous metropolitan area in the U.S

· One in five residents of the region was born outside the United States.

· Among U.S. ports, Houston ranks first in volume of imports and second in volume of exports. Texas City ranks eighth in imports and 26th in exports.

· The Houston region has 40.8 percent of the nation’s base petrochemicals production capacity.

· On the heaviest demand day in 2008, Houston area customers used 15,484 megawatts of electricity.

· The Houston region has some 338,000 students in more than 60 degree-granting colleges, universities, institutes and technical schools.

· The Houston region had 12,589 physicians in January 2009.

· Metropolitan Houston contains two of the nation’s 10 largest urban public parks.

· In 1901, the Left Hand Fishing Club purchased Houston’s first automobile — an Olds.

“Houston Facts is perhaps the most useful of the Partnership’s publications,” said Jeff Moseley, the Partnership’s President and CEO. “It’s a tremendous marketing piece, partly because the facts about Houston speak for themselves. We’re thrilled to have turned Houston Facts into a book that’s not only informative, but also attractive. I think anyone who sees a copy will want one.”

Houston Facts may be purchased from Publications Sales (713-844-9366) or at http://www.houston.org/GHP_Secure/onlinestore/index.asp ($7.50 for Members, $15 for nonmembers, plus postage and sales tax).
