The Legislative District Profiles document current housing metrics using data specific to each of 134 legislative districts, economic development region, and the state. The profiles provide a comprehensive yet concise overview of housing trends, focusing on housing affordability, the rental market, the homeownership market, top in-demand jobs and their wages relative to housing costs, evictions, and homelessness.

MHP’s Legislative Profiles are key source of housing information for advocates to engage with elected officials. They serve as a valuable guide to help elected officials understand constituent and community housing needs.  The profiles provide compelling data that makes the case to leaders for the need for critical investments and transformative policy needed to ensure every Minnesota lives in a healthy, affordable home.
