Fulton's population has decreased since 1980, dropping 16 percent in 20 years. From 1990 to 2000, the neighborhood lost residents while the citywide population grew. Minneapolis' population was 3.1 percent higher in 2000 than it was in 1980.

In 2000 Fulton had 34 percent fewer children and adolescents, 2.5 percent fewer adult residents and 46.5 percent fewer senior residents than it did in 1980. Although the population of residents aged 25 to 64 grew during this period, those gains couldn't make up for losses in all other age groups.

The ethnic distribution of Fulton changed only slightly from 1980 to 2000. The number of non-white residents increased in general during that 20-year period, but remained a small fraction of all the neighborhood's residents. Fulton's white population, which comprised 98 percent of the neighborhood's total ethnic population in 1980, fell just to 94 percent in 2000. The next largest ethnic group, the Asian population, accounted for just 1.7 percent of Fulton's population in 2000. Hispanics increased from 0.4 percent in 1980 to 1.6 percent in 2000. The number of black residents in Fulton increased from 1980 to 2000, but decreased from a peak reached in 1990. The number of American Indians also grew in Fulton during this 20-year period.
