(Houston, TX — David Pittman, KUHF) The idea of having a house in the suburbs is rapidly losing its luster among folks in Houston. This year’s Houston Area Survey finds a significant increase in the number of people who are sick and tired of burning up their precious money and time on the road.
Thirteen years ago, the Houston Area Survey started asking people who lived in urban areas if they’d prefer to live in the suburbs.  It also asked people in the suburbs if they’d like to move into the city one day. Survey founder Stephen Klineberg, a Rice University sociology professor, says the survey has revealed a clear shift in opinion.
