State, County, Congressional District, & Legislative District Profiles
MHP’s State Housing Profile, a precursor to MHP’s seminal State of the State’s Housing report. Released once every two years, this resource provides new data measurements at the state level in critical housing areas for 2023. This profile features data on cost-burdened households paying at least 30% of their income for housing, a spotlight on children affected by housing insecurity, the rise of evictions, homeownership disparities, a comparison of what jobs pay vs what renting and owning actually costs, and more.
MHP announces the release of our 2023 County Profiles. Produced once every two years, this resource provides new data measurements at the county level in critical housing areas. MHP’s County Profiles feature data on different demographics of cost-burdened households paying at least 30% of their income for housing, changes in rent and home prices, eviction filings compared to pre-pandemic rates, racial disparities in homeownership, a comparison of top in-demand wages compared to current housing costs, and more.
Data for the County Profiles is gathered from a variety of sources including the American Community Survey (ACS) from the US Census Bureau, Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Eviction Lab, Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, and the Wilder Research Center.
MHP releases Congressional District Profiles as part of its 2021 State of the State of Housing report. These profiles provide data on cost-burdened households paying at least 30% of their income for housing, a comparison of what common jobs pay, and what renting and owning actually costs for each of Minnesota’s 8 Congressional Districts.
Every two years, the Minnesota Housing Partnership publishes Legislative District Profiles, an essential resource that provides data on housing measure for all 134 legislative districts across the state, including:
- Rent and home values
- Income and cost burden for renters and homeowners
- Earnings of top jobs compared to housing costs
- And more
Whether we engage in person or online, when we advocate for housing, lawmakers need to know what’s going on in the communities they represent. District profiles are created for House districts (ending in A or B); for Senate districts, share the A and B profiles together with your State Senator.
Find out who represents you and identify your district number.
And download our handy Minnesota Legislative District and Economic Development Region Reference Map to help you interpret your profile.
