The Kinder Institute for Urban Research provides critical analysis on a range of pressing urban issues, including education, transportation, health, development, resiliency, immigration and more.

As the most diverse metropolitan area in the country, Houston is the ideal place for the Kinder Institute for Urban Research to call home. In addition to an annual survey that tracks the changing attitudes and concerns of Houston-area residents, the Kinder Institute produces research and leads the conversation on a range of topics important to Houston, Sun Belt cities and all urban areas.
