Between 1980 and 1990 Corcoran declined slightly in population. But between 1990 and 2000, the neighborhood grew by a higher percentage than the City of Minneapolis did. Corcoran lost 125 residents during the '80s, then gained 593 to reach a 2000 population of 4,228.

Corcoran has increasing numbers of working-age adults and children and declining numbers of retired-age residents. The population losses in the 1980s can be attributed to a decline in the young adult (18-24 group) and retired-age population. An increase in working-age residents and children brought about a population rebound in 2000.

The neighborhood's population diversified between 1980 and 2000. There was a substantial increase in the Hispanic and black populations in the ‘90s. The percentage of white people decreased by more than 40 percent between 1980 and 2000.
