Minneapolis ranks among America's 'loneliest' cities, report says

Minnesota's largest city ranks among the nation's "loneliest," according to a new report that analyzes the percentage of single-occupancy residences in the U.S. The Chamber of Commerce, a company that writes guides for small-business owners, found that nearly 44% of Minneapolis residents live alone, ranking the city ninth on its index.

Washington, D.C., where about 49% of residents live alone, topped the list. Chamber of Commerce analyzed U.S. census data for 170 cities and census-designated places with a population of 150,000 or more to come up with its rankings.

In Minneapolis, Chamber of Commerce found that 1 in 4 men live alone. The number was about equal for women.
