The average Texas woman may not be who you think she is. The Texas Women’s Foundation, in conjunction with research for Every Texan, set out to define who the average Texas woman is and get a picture of her financial life.
Their study found that 14 million women and girls call Texas home in the third edition of the Economic Issues for Women in Texas report. Half of female Texans live in Dallas, San Antonio or Houston.
In addition to defining the average Texas woman, the study looked at how education, housing, health insurance and child care contribute to women’s lives in the Lone Star State, as well as how those issues express themselves economically. The Dallas Business Journal looked at how those financial factors impact Texas women over their adult lives.
