Houston was a boom town in 1982 gaining more than 1320 people every week. Dr. Klineberg and his Rice University sociology students conducted a survey of the demographics, experiences and beliefs of the most rapidly growing city ever. By the end of 1983, the price of oil had crashed and Houston had lost more than 100,000 jobs. Klineberg conducted another survey and, over the years, a remarkable demographic image has emerged. Russ is at DLS10 as he interviews Dr Stephen Klineberg, Professor of Sociology and founder of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research.
