Fulshear's population is rapidly expanding, and the US Census Bureau's 2016 population estimates for Texas released in July 2017 revealed Fulshear as the fastest growth city in the State. In 2017, the City’s Economic Development Corporations (EDCs) funded an inaugural demographic study for the City of Fulshear to better gauge our current population, and to project future residential and population growth. The City utilizes the demography firm, Population and Survey Analysts (PASA), to conduct the report which is updated annually.  

The report covers a study area which encompasses the City of Fulshear, its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ), and areas just beyond the ETJ that are not currently included in other jurisdictions. It provides a basic population and demographic overview as well as projections, to provide reliable data regarding Fulshear's residential development, upon which other models could be built for various planning efforts across the City.
