Edina: not that rich, but just that white

Star Tribune has some details on the report released by the MetCouncil:

The stereotype of Edina as rich flies out the window compared with other cities in the report — at least when looking at annual incomes.

Edina residents’ median household income of $76,805 ranks fifth among fully developed suburbs, behind Champlin, Minnetonka, Golden Valley and Shoreview.

It doesn’t include accumulated wealth, though. However, Edina is just as lily white as you suspected, with less than 10% of its population self-identifying as non-white.

    Turns out Mn is pretty lily white.

    Within Minnesota, the
    metropolitan population is
    87.6 percent white and 5.5
    percent African American.
    The micropolitan
    population is 95.4 percent
    white and 0.9 percent
    African American, and the
    noncore population is 96.3
    percent white and 0.5
    percent African American.


    I’m surpised Woodbury isn’t in the top 5.I seem to recall a few years ago I heard it surpassed Edina.
