The Texas Business Review is a publication of the Bureau of Business Research, Graduate School of Business, University of Texas at Austin. It serves as a primary source of information about Texas business, including regional growth and development, the dynamics of change, and census data relating to state manufacturing firms and population. The journal, whose first issue appeared in April 1927, was founded in partial fulfillment of a mandate to the Bureau of Business Research to "make available to the businessmen of Texas the best thought on economic and business problems." Robert H. Ryan, managing editor from 1951 to 1976, expanded the Review from a comprehensive collection of statistical data setting forth the economic health of the state to a journal with supplements on such subjects as construction in Texas and Texas economic indicators as well as informative articles on the Texas or Mexican economic climate and industry in other metropolitan regions. Copies of the Review are distributed to businessmen, policymakers, and members of the public and private sectors in Texas, across the nation, and in some countries overseas. The Review was originally published each month; in 1990 it appeared six times a year and had a circulation of about 7,000.
