    City and Township Population Data | Last Updated 2021-11-02T20:12:48.000Z

    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.

    AFSC/RACE/SAP: Detailed Crab Data From NOAA Fisheries Service Annual Eastern Bering Sea Summer Bottom Trawl Surveys 1975 - 2018 | Last Updated 2018-11-26T22:13:35.000Z

    This dataset contains detailed crab data collected from the annual NOAA/NMFS/AFSC/RACE crab-groundfish bottom trawl survey of the eastern Bering Sea continental shelf. The standard survey area, surveyed each year since 1975, encompasses a major portion of the eastern Bering Sea shelf between the 20 meter and 200 meter isobaths and from the Alaska Peninsula to the north of St. Matthew Island. The study area is divided into a grid with cell sizes of 20 x 20 nautical miles (37 x 37 kilometers). Sampling takes place within each 20 x 20 nautical mile grid cell. In areas surrounding St. Matthew (1983-present) and the Pribilof Islands (1981-present), grid corners were also sampled to better assess king crab concentrations. In 1975, tows were 1 hour in duration; from 1976 to present, each tow is one-half hour in duration, averaging 1.54 nautical miles (2.86 kilometers) - exact tow duration and distance fished for each haul can be found in RACEBASE.HAUL. 100% of the catch is sorted for red, blue, and golden king crab, bairdi Tanner, snow crab, hybrid Tanner, and hair crab. Crabs are sorted by species and sex, and a sample is measured to the nearest millimeter to provide a size-frequency distribution (see note under use constraints for analyzing catches where crab were subsampled for measurement). Carapace width is measured for Tanner crabs, and carapace length is measured for king and hair crabs.
