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:

Senior Age Population and Household Size in Longfellow.

Schroeder, Jonathan, Sook-Jin Kim, and Charles Kimbrough.

This project examined the hypothesis that an increase in senior-age populations living in family housing in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis was making affordable family housing unavailable to new families. A number of maps were created at the block level demonstrating change from 1990 to 2000 in senior-age population, as well as change in the average size of household (as an indirect measure of how many families are living in the area). A map was also created showing the distribution of affordable housing in Longfellow. In the case of the senior-age population change map, the researchers found that Longfellow did not differ significantly from trends throughout Minneapolis, where senior-age population is generally declining at a rapid rate. The findings concerning change in average household size, on the other hand, confirmed the neighborhood's concern that fewer families are living in Longfellow.
