How We Determined The Cities In Minnesota With The Largest Hispanic Population For 2021

We still believe in the accuracy of data -- especially from the census. So that's where we went to get the breakdown of race across Minnesota.

That lead us to the Census's most recently available data, the 2015-2019 American Community Survey data from the US Census.

Specifically, we looked at table B03002: Hispanic OR LATINO ORIGIN BY RACE. Here are the category names as defined by the Census:

  • Hispanic or Latino
  • White alone*
  • Black or African American alone*
  • American Indian and Alaska Native alone*
  • Asian alone*
  • Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone*
  • Some other race alone*
  • Two or more races*
* Not Hispanic or latino

Our particular column of interest here was the number of people who identified as Hispanic or Latino.

We limited our analysis to non-CDPs with a population greater than 5,000 people. That left us with 138 cities.

We then calculated the percent of residents that are Hispanic or Latino. The percentages ranked from 42.4% to 0.0%.

Finally, we ranked each city based on the percent of Hispanic or Latino population with a higher score being more Hispanic or Latino than a lower score. Worthington took the distinction of being the most Hispanic or Latino, while Albertville was the least Hispanic or Latino city. You can download the data here.

  1. I don’t want to assume the worst or base my interpretation on incorrect facts.
    But i find it interesting that in this article you showed data of the Hispanic population percentage break down figures by cities and then right beside that data you have a link to home sales/real estate. As to suggest Hispanic & minorities lower property values and decrease home sales.
    What a shame if that was the intentions of your work. Or what a pity if your oblivious & unaware.
