The annual Out of Reach report features rental affordability data for every state, metro area, and county in the US. The report is published annually by the National Low Income Housing Coalition, with Minnesota data released jointly by MHP.
2014 (March 24, 2014)
A modest two-bedroom apartment in Minnesota would require a full time wage of $16.46 on average, the 2014 Out of Reach report finds. A minimum wage earner in Minnesota would have to work 91 hours per week – or hold 2.3 full time jobs – to afford this apartment. See how your county stacks up, and how Minnesota compares to the Midwest.
