Dette er en liste over amter i Minnesota . Der er 87 amter i den amerikanske delstat Minnesota . Der er også flere historiske amter .

Den 27. oktober 1849 blev ni amter etableret: Benton, Dahkotah, Itasca, Ramsey, Mahkahta, Pembina, Wabasha, Washington og Wahnata. Seks af disse navne eksisterer stadig. Med grundlæggelsen af Kittson County den 9. marts 1878 eksisterede Pembina County ikke længere.[1] Da Minnesota blev organiseret som en stat, blev 57 af de nuværende 87 amter etableret. Det sidste amt, der blev oprettet var Lake of the Woods County i 1923. [2]

Navne på mange af amterne skyldes den lange historie med udforskning. Mere end ti amter er opkaldt efter indianske grupper, der boede i dele af det der nu er Minnesota. Yderligere 15 amter er opkaldt efter fysiske geografiske træk og resten efter politikere.

FIPS-county code er den femcifrede Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) kode, som unikt identificerer amter og amtækvivalenter i USA. Det trecifrede nummer er unikt for hvert enkelt amt i en stat, men for at være unikt i hele USA, skal det være præfikset af statskoden. Dette betyder at for eksempel nummer 001 deles af Aitkin County, Minnesota, Adams County, Wisconsin og Adair County, Iowa. For unikt at identificere Aitkin County, Minnesota, skal man bruge statskoden 27 plus amtskoden til 001; Derfor er den unikke landsdækkende identifikator for Aitkin County, Minnesota 27001. Links i kolonnen FIPS County Code er til Census Bureau Info siden for det pågældende amt.[3]
