Housing Inequality in Northfield, MN

Our group is interested in the issue of housing inequality and how that contributes to the racial division in Northfield, MN. The racial dot map (shown under Northfield Interactive Map) that we were presented in class caught our attention. We want to know the types of housing people live in, the number of people who own or rent a house, their average annual income, and their overall living conditions. We are focusing on the Northfield city limits, especifically on the trailer park Viking Terrace where a majority of the Latinx population lives. Our group project talks about housing inequality yet focuses on the experiences of the people affected by this.
