Texas Trends Survey 2021 Electric Vehicles

The Texas Trends Survey project is a five-year survey project from the University of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs and the Executive Master of Public Administration Program at the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University.

The five-year endeavor is a survey research project that examines Texas’ changing population, with an emphasis on the state’s Black, Latino, and Asian
residents. In addition to collecting a representative sample of all Texans, the survey includes an over sample of these three groups to allow for an objective and statistically valid report of their opinions and experiences.

The first survey of this five-year project focused on opinions about recently passed legislation during the 2021 regular and special sessions of the Texas Legislature and preferences related to electric vehicles and criminal justice issues. The survey was fielded between October 4 and October 21, 2021 in English and Spanish. A total of 2,067 YouGov respondents 18 years of age and older took the survey, resulting in a confidence interval of ±2.2% at the 95% confidence level. The respondents were matched to a sampling frame on gender, age, ethnicity/race, and education and are representative of the Texas adult population.

This is the fourth report from the first survey. This report examines Texans’ political attitudes related to electric vehicles, challenges to electric vehicle adoption, and support for public policies that would promote the purchase and lease of electric vehicles.

Also available are two previously released reports on other Texas Trends Survey 2021 topics – Abortion and Transgender Athletes Policies, as well as the state’s Election Reform and Redistricting. The upcoming fourth, and final, release of this year’s survey results will focus on Texans’ opinions surrounding electric vehicles.
