Region E Planning Group

Region E Stretching from the city of El Paso at the Texas-New Mexico state line over salt flats and southeastward toward the sparsely populated mountainous Big Bend country and the Pecos River, the Far West Texas Planning Area includes seven counties that lie within the Rio Grande Basin. The largest economic sectors in the region are agriculture, agribusiness, manufacturing, tourism, wholesale and retail trade, government, and military. About 96 percent of the region's residents reside in El Paso County, where the population density is 760 persons per square mile. The other six counties have a density of 1.1 persons per square mile.
