The higher the unemployment rates for most of the Minnesotans than for white Minnesotans.

Overall, Minnesotans are doing better than a few years ago. We learned that much since Census release in September 2018 showed that revenue is rising.

But we then learned that there is a stark imbalance when you look at the economic status of black, white, Asian, Spanish and Latin, and Native American Minnesotans.

A newer report shows that there are also many disparities within these broad racial and ethnic groups.

This five things we learned from newer data on the economic status of Minnesotans. Released by Minnesota State Demographic Center in January more, this report looks at statistics for 17 cultural groups, which helps us to better understand what is in the population of the state, and the differences between different groups.

There are many cultural groups that make up 19.7 per cent of Minnesotans who are colored people.

African-American Minnesotans and Mexican Minnesotans are the largest cultural groups among Minnesotans, followed by Hmong and Somali Minnesotans. (Note that the data may have significant error margins due to the size of the population, and not all cultural groups are included in the data as many were not to make estimates).

Minnesotans are usually much younger than white Minnesotans

That's particularly the case for Minnesotans of Somalia, the Hmong and the Mexican, which are almost half of them under 21 years of age. Mexican Minnesotan 23. Meaning Minnesota workforce in the future is that it will be much different than its current workforce.

Minnesotans' share varies greatly with a bachelor degree or higher according to a cultural group

Asian Minnesotans have some of the highest educational rates in the state – and some of the lowest: 84 percent of Indian Asian Minnesotans have a bachelor degree or higher; and Chinese Minnesotans, Korean and Filipino also have a high educational attainment rate. But 11 percent of Lao Minnesotan does not have a bachelor degree or higher.

That means that if Minnesota cannot cope with some of the inequalities that go to college, it will be tough for the state to persuade the labor force that said, Megan Dayton, senior demography at the State Demographic Center t Minnesota.

Many incomes also vary

Asian Minnesotans, for example, have average household income of about $ 105,000 by Asian Indian Minnesotans, the highest in any group in the state, and average household income Hmong Minnesotans is around $ 61,000 and Korean Minnesotans are around at $ 53,000.

Not only are Minnesotans born in Ireland and having a hard time economically

The higher the unemployment rates for most of the Minnesotans than for white Minnesotans. What's more, the unemployment rates for Ojibwe and African-American Minnesotans are higher than they are for Somali and Hmong Minnesotans, and for other groups where there are many new Americans. For other indicators, the patterns are broadly the same. “We certainly have a number of long-term obstacles for some unique color communities,” said Dayton. “And these people are not new immigrants.” T
