The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Mapping Demographic Trends for School Enrollment Projection in the Independent School District 709 (Duluth, MN).

Kuhlke, Olaf, Beth Holbrook, and Joshua Pust.

Reports on a mapping project directed at providing the Independent School District 709 of Duluth, Minnesota, with accurate maps depicting demographic trends in school attendance areas, as well as census blocks and tracks. It was conceptualized as a comprehensive planning tool for the school district, the school board, community members, and concerned parents, and provides information about demographic trends from the year 2000 to 2014. The demographic analysis was centered on mapping the number of children between the ages of 5 and 17 for each census block, track, and school attendance area in Duluth. In addition, it provides data about the current population over the age of 60, and thus enables planners to detect areas with the highest upcoming turnover in the future housing market.
