Minneapolis 2010 Census Results

Welcome to the City of Minneapolis 2010 Census data results page, managed by the Community Planning and Economic Development Department [CPED]. This site includes a variety of tables and reports from the decennial 2010 Census, as well as links to historical trend data from previous decennial Censuses. Note: unlike previous decennial Censuses, the 2010 Census included only a limited number of questions focused on population, age, gender, race/ethnicity and some housing information. The detailed questions on economic, social, demographic and housing characteristics are now part of the annual American Community Survey.

Thus far, there have been two phases of 2010 Census data released for Minnesota:

The initial release in March 2011 consisted of only the redistricting portion of 2010 Census data, which included the following information at a Census block level:

Refer to the Redistricting Summary File – March 2011 for more information about the data release.

A second round of 2010 Census results, including age and gender detail, household and group quarters population, was released in July, 2011. See the Summary File 1 Tables July 2011 for a full description of this release.

Also, see the Census Bureaus Product Release Schedule for full a schedule of the national Census data publication timeline.

Redistricting Summary File – March 2011

On March 16, 2011, the Census Bureau released the 2010 Census PL 94-171 Redistricting Data Summary File for Minnesota. See their March 16, 2011, media advisory (pdf) for a full description of this release.

Summary File 1 Tables – July 2011

A second and more detailed phase of 2010 Census data was released on July 14, 2011. These Summary File 1 tables provide the most detailed counts available so far from the 2010 Census, including cross-tabulations of age, sex, households, families, relationship to householder, housing units, detailed race and Hispanic or Latino origin groups, and group quarters. The statistics are available for a variety of geographic areas, with most tables available down to the block or census tract level.

Summary File 1 provides new layers of detail about the topics covered in the 2010 Census and cross-tabulates many of these topics to provide a more nuanced picture. Beyond just providing counts of families, for example, the summary file also shows the number of families by type, by the age of the children present and by race and Hispanic origin of the householder.

Many of the tables are repeated for nine race and Hispanic or Latino origin groups: white alone, black or African-American alone, American Indian and Alaska Native alone, Asian alone, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone, some other race, two or more races, Hispanic or Latino, and white alone not Hispanic or Latino.
