Between 1980 and 2000, Kenwood's population steadily declined – especially during the 1990s – losing 23.6 percent during the whole period. In contrast, the City of Minneapolis' population increased by 3.1 percent.

Kenwood had fewer children and adolescents in 2000 than in 1980. The loss, however, was concentrated in the school-age population, ages 5 to 17. In fact, there were nine more children under age 5 in 2000 than in 1980. Population decreases were also seen in other age groups. Although there were fewer adults and senior residents in 2000, there were 141 more aged 45 to 64.

The ethnic makeup of the population changed only slightly between 1980 and 2000. The neighborhood's white population comprised 96 percent of the neighborhood's total in 1980 and had a small decline to 93 percent in 2000. Other ethnic groups increased their share in the total, but their numbers continued to be quite small. Hispanics increased the most, adding 20 new residents in 2000.
