2015 Disparity Study

The City of San Antonio has made great progress in creating opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses, but barriers related to race and gender remain, finds a new Disparity Study directed by Dr. Jon Wainwright, Senior Vice President of National Economic Research Associates.

During the public hearing held on November 10, 2015, the Small Business Advocacy Committee requested information regarding prime contractor participation on City of San Antonio contracts. The updated version of the study available below includes this additional information.

A hard copy version of the Disparity Study is available for review at the Economic Development Department on the 19th floor of the Frost Bank Building, 100 W. Houston Street, San Antonio, Texas, 78205.

An electronic copy is available.
