This data layer depicts the 2021 Population Density estimates. Additionally, attribute information displays data on race, age, and gender. It was developed by Metropolitan Council and the Natural Resources Research Institute using data from the American Community Survey (ACS). The 2021 Population Density estimate was compiled at the census tract level. The ACS is conducted on an annual basis by the US Census Bureau. It covers housing, demographic, social, and economic topics. The annual results are aggregated into five-year intervals from 2017 to 2021 to produce more accurate estimates. The ACS provides more timely data than the Census for identifying trends in a community. Total Population Density data enables a planner or project manager to compare settlement intensity across Minnesota counties.
