How We Determined The Cities In minnesota With The Largest Hispanic Population For 2020

We still believe in the accuracy of data -- especially from the census. So that's where we went to get the breakdown of race across minnesota.

That lead us to the Census's most recently available data, the 2014-2018 American Community Survey data from the US Census.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as Hispanic or Latino.

We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 139 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Hispanic or Latino. The percentages ranked from 42.2% to 0.0%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of Hispanic or Latino population with a higher score being more Hispanic or Latino than a lower score. Worthington took the distinction of being the most Hispanic or Latino, while Albertville was the least Hispanic or Latino city. You can download the data here.

One thought on “Minnesota Cities With The Largest Latino Population, 2020

  1. I don’t want to assume the worst or base my interpretation on incorrect facts.
    But i find it interesting that in this article you showed data of the Hispanic population percentage break down figures by cities and then right beside that data you have a link to home sales/real estate. As to suggest Hispanic & minorities lower property values and decrease home sales.
    What a shame if that was the intentions of your work. Or what a pity if your oblivious & unaware.
