All About Alief TX

Alief, Texas is a neighborhood in Harris County. Alief is a lower-class area located in Southern Harris County. Alief used to be a peaceful neighborhood in the 19th century. However, the suburbanization of Houston had a significant impact on the development of Alief.  From 1918 to 1969, Alief went through progressive development. 

Things drastically changed for Alief when the Vietnam war was at its peak. In the 1970s, there was an energy crisis and oil prices reached record highs. During this time, the Alief area underwent massive population growth stimulated by Vietnamese refugee resettlement. During the construction of corporate campuses, people started to live here, which is another reason for Alief’s population growth.

Alief is notable for its ethnic diversity. According to a report published in 2015, there were 106,657 people in Alief, nearly half of whom were Hispanic. Asians, Blacks, and whites comprised most of the rest.
