From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Nov. 15, 2010:
St. Paul residents are more attached to their city than folks in many other cities and that could mean good things for the local economy, according to a study released Monday.
The Soul of the Community report by Gallup and the Knight Foundation, based on three years of data, looked at 25 other cities to gauge people's passion for where they live.
The study has found a positive correlation between community attachment and local economic growth.
