This report presents the findings of a study of ethnic and race relations in Austin, Texas, conducted by faculty and students in the LBJ School of Public Affairs during 1999-2000. The project, funded by the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation, the LBJ School, and the City of Austin, examined citizens' assessments of the quality of race relations, ethnic groups' perceptions of each other, discrimination reported by these groups, and measures of ethnic tolerance. Based on survey research and community interviews, the project also studied the perceptions of the City of Austin and its services held by various ethnic groups and presents recommendations made as a result of the study.
