HOUSTON, TX – Everyone knows that Houston traffic is a nightmare. What you might not know is that 49% of Houstonians say they want better public transportation and 47% support expanded highways.

That’s the word from Sociologist Stephen Klineberg of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research at Rice University.

Here’s a summary of some of the Houston Area Survey’s findings.

When it comes to the death penalty, something Texas is known for, 68% of residents support life imprisonment as an alternative.

And things are looking up for gay rights, too.

51% surveyed favor gays being able to legally adopt children; that’s up from 17% in 1991.

Houstonians are also supportive of immigrants, 59% believe immigrants contribute more to the economy than they take. That’s up 10% from 2012.

One thing’s for sure, things are definitely changing in the Bayou City.
