Between 1980 and 2000, Bryant's population increased by 3.5 percent, slightly more than Minneapolis' population, which grew by 3.1 percent. In 2000, Bryant had nearly 2,800 people.

Bryant saw its population climb from 1980 to 2,000. This was mainly due to an increase in the number of residents aged 25 to 44, which rose by 142 people. The school-age population (ages 5 to 17) also increased, adding 87 residents to Bryant. The populations of all other age groups decreased.

Bryant's ethnic makeup has become increasingly diverse since 1980. Although the black population accounted for more than half of the residents, it decreased between 1990 and 2000. The white population has been decreasing steadily since 1980, and made up 21 percent of the population in 2000. In contrast, the neighborhood's Hispanic population grew 12 times during this time, bringing its share to 15 percent.
