Northfield Area Data and Statistics
Data and statistics about the city of Northfield and surrounding area.

The main source of statistics about population and housing, the Census takes many forms. The best place to start for current information is the Census FactFinder web site. To navigate from the home page enter 'Northfield, MN' into the search box, and indicate on the next screen that you want Northfield city. Here you'll find an overview of information from the most recent census along with numerous links to more detailed information.
