City to seek new demographer

Tuesday, July 28, 2020 by Jo Clifton

Ryan Robinson, who served as the city of Austin’s demographer from 1995 until the present, has retired after 30 years of service to the city. Jerry Rusthoven, Robinson’s boss, said Robinson had planned for some time to retire when he hit the 30-year mark on July 1. Rusthoven said the city is certainly going to need a new demographer to work with census data and help a city task force formulate new district maps next year. Although the city is currently under a hiring freeze, Rusthoven said he has put in the paperwork to start looking for a replacement for Robinson. Robinson did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
