This study shows where the Employees of ten major greater Mankato area employers are living and how their route to Mankato looks like. Furthermore, it examines in which areas a high number of those Employees are living and if there is a connection to those areas and the rent prices or the amount of real estate taxes compared to Mankato. Are there other places than Mankato which offer more lifestyle, which are more worth living or just have the right neighborhood? Perhaps there is also a possibility that the twin cities metropolitan area has his role into the choice of the right place to live. On one hand some people might prefer a short stay in the car every day but on the other hand their might be other people for those other factors count more than saving time, those could be a short connection to a transit hub for buses, trains or airplanes. Furthermore, it could be also social reasons behind that, for example having the whole family at a particular location.
