The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Snowbirds Head South.

Craig, William J.

A 1989 survey of Minnesotans aged sixty or over in 1,500 households across the state showed that over 70,000 leave the state during the winter for Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas and spend $110 million while they are away. The report tells who the snowbirds are, their educational and financial makeup, and how long, on average, they stay away from Minnesota. The survey was conducted for the Wilder Research Center.
