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:

Minnesota's Housing: Shaping Community in the 1990s. Fourth in the series, What the 1990 Census Says About Minnesota.

Adams, John S., Barbara J. VanDrasek, and Elvin K. Wyly.

It is in our homes and our neighborhoods that society reproduces itself, and if things begin to go awry at home or in the neighborhood, we correctly sense that trouble is brewing for society at large. Shifts in the housing landscape often parallel changes in the direction of our society. This report, based on the 1990 Census and earlier census data, presents a profile of selected features of the Minnesota housing landscape - a landscape we have created over the years, and that is now shaping our lives. The housing supply, vacant housing, changes in the demand for housing, low income housing, poverty populations, and minority housing are all examined along with commentary on the role of housing in American life and housing policy in Minnesota.
