In some parts of our state, 1 in 3 children live in poverty, more than 1 in 3 households have high housing costs, or 1 in 8 adults are unemployed.
While Minnesota has one of the strongest economies in the nation, too many are not sharing in the state’s overall success. Minnesota’s economic future depends on all of Minnesota’s workforce reaching their full potential and being able to make ends meet.
The Minnesota Budget Project partnered with Catholic Charities to create Mapping Minnesota’s Future to Shared Opportunities – a portfolio of maps that show where our state’s strengths lie and where we have the most work to do to create a state of shared opportunity.
The maps in this portfolio contain information by county on poverty, unemployment and other indicators. Be on the lookout for upcoming blogs on specific maps in this series.
