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:

Profiles of the Twin Cities Poor. Report/One. An Overview: The Twin Cities Poor and Their Problems.

Craig, William J. and Carol A. Westrum.

This six-part series of reports is based on a 1984 survey of 966 low income households in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. This study is a thorough documentation of the characteristics of the low income population of the Twin Cities and the problems they face. Households were interviewed where income levels were no more than twice the poverty level; the result was a representative sample of the poorest 20 percent of Twin Cities households. This first report is an overview and documents characteristics of low income people.
