The Regional Policy and Research team supports planning and decision-making across the Twin Cities region: 

  • We share, analyze, and discuss U.S. Census data, focusing on relevant, interesting trends and patterns. 
  • We forecast long-term demographic and economic trends. 
  • We calculate annual estimates of population and households for all cities and townships. 

Each of these efforts help build a shared understanding of our region's demographic, social, and economic make-up. Learn more about our data and methods.
