In 2021, from racial disparities to cost burden, many trends in housing are going in the wrong direction.
MHP's County Profiles, released every odd year since 2009, continue to benchmark progress at the state, region and county levels in critical areas again in 2021. MHP’s County 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, changes in rent and home prices, housing stock age, new construction, jobs and unemployment, homeownership, and homelessness.
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), the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, and the Minnesota Department of Revenue. In addition to these government sources, the profiles rely upon local non-profits doing high quality research in the area of homelessness.
