In 2000 only eight municipalities were considered diverse in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. And while the range of diverse suburbs grew drastically between 2000 and 2010, about 45 percent are still predominantly white.
The percentage of diverse suburbs jumped from 5 percent to a whopping 23 percent in a decade. Those changes took place mostly in the north, east, and south of Minneapolis.
The Minneapolis summary (pdf) shows that population grew by 10.8 percent to 3.3 million between 2000 and 2010.
