Neighborhood Profiles Bibliography

Census data sources: Census data used in this work comes from two United States Census Bureau files: Summary File 1 and Summary File 3 (SF1 and SF3). The first includes basic demographic and housing information and is based on responses to the Census Bureau's short questionnaire sent to all households. Summary File 3 includes socio-economic information based on responses to the long form questionnaire. This questionnaire was sent to about 17 percent of listed addresses for the 2000 census, which means that the detailed data is based on a representative sample rather than the entire population. These two files (SF1 and SF3) were compiled for the three censuses of 1980, 1990 and 2000. In general, data for these three censuses are comparable. When this is not the case, differences are explained. Summary files 1 and 3 are on the Census website with technical documentation at 2000 Census of Population and Housing, Technical Documents - Summary 1 (pdf) and 2000 Census of Population and Housing, Technical Documents - Summary 3 (pdf).

Minneapolis census data can be found at 2000 Minneapolis Census Data.

Census data by neighborhood:

1980 Minneapolis neighborhood statistics: Tables for neighborhoods were provided as a part of the Census Bureau Neighborhood Statistics Program for cities in the U.S. In Minneapolis the Census Bureau collaborated with the City Planning Department (now part of CPED) and the Mayor's Office. The tables are an extract of the most relevant data from summary files 1 and 3.

1990 Minneapolis neighborhood statistics come from a Census Bureau program that specifically provided neighborhood statistics for all cities in the United States. The program was called the User-Defined Areas Program (UDAP). All of Summary File 1 and Summary File 3 with tables by neighborhoods are available for this year.

2000 Minneapolis neighborhood statistics: Minneapolis CPED purchased a special report with data by neighborhoods based on the economic and housing profiles from Summary File 3.
