Washington, DC – April 4, 2017 – Metrostudy, a Hanley Wood company and the leading provider of primary and secondary market information to the housing and related industries nationwide, has acquired Templeton Demographics, LLC, a Texas based data and consulting firm providing demographic and planning services to school districts.
