Income and Poverty. First in the series, What the 1990 Census Says About Minnesota.
The 1980s brought many changes in the income and poverty levels of people in the Twin Cities and across the state. A detailed analysis of the 1990 Census helps shed some light on the nature of these changes. Findings include: Minnesota households are generally better off than in 1980; the poorest, however, are worse off; outstate Minnesota is falling behind the metro area; and high levels of single-parent families are making the high levels of poverty among the state's minority populations even higher. This monograph is the first in a series that shows what the 1990 Census has to say about Minnesota.
