In his lecture, Dr. Keating will discuss population growth in, migration within and immigration to Texas and immigration over the next 40 years.

In his abstract, Keating explains that as population continues to decline, rural areas will lose population and urban areas will be more densely populated.

He also adds that the population of Texas will soon become predominantly Latino. He argues that changes need to be made to reposition the state’s workforce among the best in the country. Otherwise, the technical expertise of the Texas workforce may fall to the bottom of the 50 by 2050.
