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:

Commentary: Small Towns in Minnesota are Still Growing.

Hart, John Fraser and Mark B. Lindberg.

Many people think that small towns are losing their population and slowly disappearing, but they are wrong. The 2010 U.S. Census found that the population actually increased by more than 5% in two-fifths of the incorporated places in Minnesota between 2000 and 2010, remained stable in one-third, and decreased more than 5% in a mere one-quarter. Between 2000 and 2010, a greater share of the smaller places in Minnesota lost population, and a greater share of the larger places gained, with a steady progression from smallest to largest.
