Changing demographics and the importance of the census

Susan Brower, state demographer

A recent Star Tribune article highlighted what's at stake and how Minnesotans are preparing for the 2020 Census. Susan Brower's office of demographic experts helps lead Minnesota's effort to ensure everyone is counted. She'll talk about the state's changing demographics, the importance of the census, and why at least one proposed census question is controversial.

Susan Brower is the Minnesota State Demographer and has directed the Minnesota State Demographic Center since February 2012. In that capacity, she travels the state talking with Minnesotans about the new social and economic realities that are brought about by recent demographic shifts. Brower's work applies an understanding of demographic trends to changes in a range of areas including the state's economy and workforce, education, health, immigration and rural population changes.

Brower joined the State Demographic Center after working as a researcher on the Minnesota Compass project at Wilder Research in St. Paul. Prior to that, she worked at the Population Studies Center at the University of Michigan. Brower earned her Ph.D. in sociology at the University of Michigan, specializing in demography and family sociology. She also holds a master's degree in public policy from Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.

Other speakers

There will also be speakers from the Census Bureau who will describe plans for the census, employment opportunities, and the importance of everyone's participation in the census.
