Appendix 1. Demographics

The Olmsted County community is going through a period of significant growth and change. Our strong local economy has brought high rates of job growth and very low unemployment. As local labor resources are tapped to their full extent, area businesses are increasingly relying on in-immigrants to the community to fill their business expansion needs. As a result, our community is becoming home to an increasingly diverse population.

This new found diversity is reflected in our schools as well as our workplaces. From fall of 1980 to 1999, minority enrollment in school systems based in Olmsted County has increased by 160%, ranging from a 54% increase in the Asian/Pacific Islander student population to an 819% increase in Black (African American and Sub-Saharan African) student population.
