Labor force

This is a neighborhood where a large proportion of the working-age population is active in the labor force, meaning that they were either working or looking for work. The labor force participation rate was up from 84 percent in 1980 to 85 percent in 2000. The city rate, even when it was increasing, reached far lower than the neighborhood's — 72 percent in 2000.

Only 3 percent of East Isles residents in the labor force were unemployed in 2000, in comparison with almost 6 percent citywide. The unemployment rate in East Isles in 1990, at 2.1 percent, was lower than in 1980 or 2000. The Minneapolis unemployment rate reached a high point in 1990 at 6.7 percent.
