Census: Minnesota’s Urban Centers See Growth
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - New census figures show the Minneapolis-St. Paul area added more than 100,000 people between 2010 and 2013, with the urban centers accounting for more of the growth than suburbs.
The suburbs accounted for just over a third of metro-area growth, far less than last decade, when the suburbs accounted for 84 percent of the area's growth.
Census estimates say half of the overall growth in the Twin Cities happened in Hennepin County.
Regional centers across the state have also seen strong growth so far this decade.
Fargo-Moorhead has grown by nearly 15,000 since 2010. Its 7 percent rate of growth makes it one of the nation's fastest-growing metropolitan areas.
