Over the past 25 years, Minnesota has seen a substantial shift in its racial and ethnic makeup. The number of Minnesotans born outside the country has tripled, with immigrant and refugee communities now making up a critical component of the state’s economy — and a growing political force.
Today, about 84,000 Minnesotans are originally from Central America, while nearly 40,000 claim Somali ancestry, making Minnesota home to the largest population of immigrants from the Eastern African country in North America. Others have come from India, Vietnam, China and Korea, among other places.
Going forward, MinnPost’s New Americans beat will examine the issues critical to these communities. To kick off that coverage, we’ve compiled the latest census data to create a demographic snapshot of Minnesota — a picture that reveals just how much the state has changed, and how it’s likely to look in the future.
