Map Monday: Population Change 2000 – 2010

This data is starting to get a bit old, but (thanks to a link from Aaron Renn’s great article on race and demographics in Indianapolis), I was clicking around this morning using the NY Times’ interactive census and demographic map.

Here is a map of change in population for Minnesota as a a whole, and the East Metro specifically. You can zoom in to individual census tracts. Yellow is a decline and blue is an increase.

Basically many suburbs were still growing, and apart from downtowns, most cities were still shrinking.
