I saw Minneapolis' 2020 results in the city-specific thread
, but I'm surprised no one yet has posted other numbers. Met Council's 2020 Census home is here https://metrocouncil.org/Data-and-Maps/ ... -Data.aspx
with data available in PDF and .xls forms.
They have an interactive map as well, but I found that the color gradient / key needs some adjustment for it to have any value (i.e. the population density map shows the same shade region-wide, except for maybe a half dozen super high density tracts around downtown & campus that show up darker).
2010 - 2,849,567
2020 - 3,163,104 (+11.0%)
2010 - 382,578
2020 - 429,954 (+12.4%)
2010 - 285,068
2020 - 311,572 (+9.3%)
You've probably heard that Bloomington (89,987) surpassed Duluth (86,697) to become MN's 4th largest city (again*), following Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Rochester (121,395). But you may not have heard that Brooklyn Park (86,478) also nearly passed Duluth. I'd wager that as of today, 17 months past Census day, Brooklyn Park has already moved into 5th place ahead of Duluth. Plymouth is not far behind either at 81,026.
Woodbury (75,102), Maple Grove (70,253), and Blaine (70,222) also surpassed 70k for the first time. Lakeville (69,490) is now Dakota County's largest city, and all of these cities continue to grow like crazy. Edina and St. Louis Park both topped 50,000 for the first time in either city's history. Unlike most inner-ring/postwar suburbs, Edina has never once lost population.
*Interestingly, Bloomington was once, briefly, the 3rd largest city in Minnesota. In the 1990 Census, Bloomington edged Duluth by fewer than 900 people to take 3rd place, but by the year 2000 Bloomington had fallen behind Duluth and Rochester (which has grown by ~15,000 in four consecutive decades). Until climate crisis drives people to repopulate Duluth, it has little chance of re-entering the Top 5. Clearly the infrastructure is there for Duluth to hold a much larger population than it does today, having been over 100k from the 1920s-1970.
Also, this Wiki page has been updated with 2020 numbers, if you want to look beyond the 7-county data offered by Met Council: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_c ... _Minnesota
