From the Introduction: "In order to study Winter Storm Uri's impact on Texas, the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston conducted an online survey of residents 18 and older who live in the 213 counties (91.5% of the state population) served by the Texas Electrical Grid, which is managed by the Electrical Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). The survey documents Texans' experiences during the storm and explores preferences among potential changes in policies regarding electricity. The survey also examines opinions about the lifting of statewide COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] restrictions. The survey was fielded by YouGov between March 9-19, 2021 with 1,500 YouGov respondents, resulting in a confidence interval of +/-2.5. The respondents were matched to a sampling frame on gender, age, ethnicity/race, and education and are representative of the adult population in these 213 counties. The results of this survey will be presented in two individual reports: The Lifting the COVID-19 Restrictions and the Winter Storm of 2021 [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=851759]."
