The new Census data was released on September 20th, and there's a lot to digest. The good news is that there was a bit more housing affordabillity for owners in 2011, but there are a lot of other findings to motivate housing advocates. The data suggested a growing divide between lower and upper income Minnesotans, and some persistent disparities, especially in home ownership rates. The data, from the American Community Survey, is the best information available about housing affordability for Minnesota and for places with a population of 65,000 and up, including the Twin Cities, Duluth, Mankato, Rochester, and St. Cloud metro areas. So what's in there?
