Ramsey County Homes & Real Estate


Ramsey County 

The award given to Dave Twa, country manager of Ramsey County in Minnesota, speaks well of the quality of the county management. With a measly budget of $518,729,994 for 2006, and several budget cuts, Twa was able to make sure the administrative processes of Ramsey County worked well qualifying him for the award. . 

Population profile 

Ramsey County is one of the biggest counties in Minnesota with a population count of 511,035 as of the 200 Census. This is not a surprise since it is the location of St. Paul, the capital city of the State of Minnesota. But while it is a large county population wise, it is the state’s smallest county area wise. 

Most of its population are Whites (77.37%) followed by Asians (8.77%), Black or African Americans (7.61%). The rest is a mixture of Native Americans, Pacific Islanders as well as Hispanics and Latinos. 

The average population age is fairly young at 34 years. The average income for its 201,236 households is $45,722 while the average income for the 119,936 families is pegged at $57,747. 

Ramsey County consists of the following cities: Arden Hills, North Oaks, Blaine, North St. Paul, Falcon Heights, Roseville, Gem Lake, Shoreview, Lauderdale, St. Anthony, Little Canada, St. Paul, Maplewood, Spring Lake Park, Mounds View, Vadnais Heights, New Brighton and White Bear Lake. 


Minnesota’s first nine counties were created by virtue of an act which was signed on October 27, 1849. It would have been named St. Paul County had the name not been changed to Ramsey County (after Governor Ramsey) before the second reading. While Ramsey was well-liked by the people, some suspected that the county was named after him for the sake of flattery. 

Trials were a big thing in the county then as only three judges took care of all court responsibilities for the nine counties. 

Social Services 

Minnesota had the smallest share of the expenditure pie in 1990 compared to the other states. In fact, 67% of the expenses for the county’s criminal justice system came from its local property tax earnings while only 33% were contributed by the state. For the following year, the state of Minnesota contributed 35.5% of the social services costs of each county while 23.5% came from the federal government and the remaining 38.1% from the county itself. 

The state however believes that it is better to let each county contribute to its expenses in partnership with the state and the federal government to encourage more local government participation and accountability. To maximize their resources, some counties have contributed to common facilities and programs like waste management and healthcare services.
