In 2000 East Isles had 3,340 people, 1 percent fewer than it had in 1980. In comparison the city grew by 3 percent between 1980 and 2000. In 1990 however, the opposite had occurred — the neighborhood had added 112 more people while the city lost population.

In 2000 the neighborhood had 27.5 percent fewer children and adolescents, and 24 percent fewer senior residents than it had in 1980. The adult population however, grew by more than 5 percent, although not enough to offset the losses of the other two groups. Within the adult population, the only age group that grew in 2000 from the 1990 level was the 45- to 64-year-old population.

*Hispanics could be any race

The white population, although declining somewhat, is a solid majority in the neighborhood. In 2000 this group accounted for 92 percent of the total population. Other ethnic groups are increasing in the neighborhood but not at a very fast pace.
