Households in the neighborhood are smaller than they were in 1980. As the population declined, household size went down too – from 2.5 people per household in 1980 to 2.2 in 2000. That was smaller than the average household in Minneapolis, which had 2.3 people in 2000.
Two types of households declined steadily from 1980 to 2000: families and people 65 and over who live alone. However, by 2000, houses were occupied mostly by families and by people younger than 65 living alone.
Keewaydin's population is dropping, and householders there are increasingly living alone. Out of all householders in the neighborhood, the percentage of them living alone increased steadily from 1980 to 2000. However, these figures stayed well below the Minneapolis percentages.
More Keewaydin seniors were living alone in 2000 than in 1980 or 1990. The percentage of neighborhood seniors living alone was closer to the Minneapolis figure in 2000 than in 1980.
The percentage of Keewaydin families with children increased from 41 percent in 1980 to 45 percent in 2000. This proportion is 5 percent lower than it is citywide.
