Labor force

Between 1980 and 2000 the percentage of Hiawatha residents 16 years and older who were employed or looking for a job (participating in the labor force) increased progressively from 59 percent in 1980 to 72 percent in 2000. In 1980 and 1990, neighborhood labor force participation was lower than the city's. In 2000, however, Hiawatha and Minneapolis had the same participation rate.

In 1980 Hiawatha had a higher unemployment rate than the city did. This reversed in 1990 when the city reached 6.7 percent unemployment, while the neighborhood's percentage did not change. In 2000 unemployment rose in Hiawatha and declined in the city, but the neighborhood continued to have a slightly lower unemployment rate than the city.
