Kick-off Event Maps

These maps were displayed at the Imagine Duluth Kick-off Celebration on September 21, 2016. Their main purpose is to show Duluth as it is now. These maps help us understand where things are and how places are connected, and give us a starting point to imagine how Duluth could develop over the next 20 years.

Survey Results


We collected demographic information on our survey so we can better understand who we are hearing from and who we need to do a better job of reaching out to. We also use demographic information to make sure that if voices that have been historically marginalized are telling us something unique, we hear it. 4,175 community members shared their thoughts with us by taking the survey. 

Here are some snapshots of the respondents who shared their demographic information with us:

Please note that 15-17% of respondents chose not to share demographic information with us. Those respondents are not included in the pie charts above.

Did we hear from respondents who are representative of the total population in Duluth? Some demographic groups were representative of the total population, but others were over or under represented in our survey responses. If you would like to explore the demographics in Duluth and compare them to the demographics of our survey respondents, check out this demographic mapping tool.
