2010 Results

Minneapolis can be proud of the hard work of our Complete Count Committees and many community groups, churches and other agencies helping to get out the message: “It’s in Our Hands.” The increase in mail participation rates from Census 2000 was dramatic, with a final mail-in participation rate of 78%, up from 68% in 2000. On August 11, 2010, Debra Stanley of the Kansas City Regional Census Bureau presented City leaders with an award for their extraordinary success in local outreach efforts for the 2010 census. The City's mail-back participation rate was the highest of any city with populations of 300,000 or more in the country.
