City and Township Population Data | Last Updated 21 Mar 2022

Sources: MN State Demographic Center and the Metropolitan Council. Released August 2020. The Minnesota State Demographic Center (our office) and the Metropolitan Council jointly produce population and household estimates for all years between the U.S. Census Bureau's decennial (10-year) counts.  The Met Council produces the estimates for the seven counties of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington, as well as all cities and townships within those counties. Our office produces the estimates for the other 80 Minnesota counties outside of the 7-county metro, as well as all cities and townships within those counties. Notes: New estimates are released annually in late July for the prior year. All data are dated to April 1. Persons per household is calculated by dividing the household population by the number of occupied households in any given geography. The household population does not equal the total population because some residents live in "group quarters" settings (such as college dormitories, nursing facilities, shelters, treatment centers, religious orders, military barracks, or correctional facilities), and thus are not living in households.  Cities that cross county boundaries are segmented by each county's portion (labeled "part"), as well as appearing in total under "Multi-County City" in the "COUNTY NAME" column.
