Logan Park's labor force participation rate increased between the years of 1980 and 2000. Compared to the entire city, the proportion of neighborhood residents in the labor force, (people who were employed or looking for a job) was slightly lower for all three decades. In 2000, 67.9 percent of Logan Park's population over the age of 16 was part of the work force. In Minneapolis 72 percent of that same age group participated in the labor force.
Logan Park had a lower unemployment rate than Minneapolis in 1980, and again in 1990. However, the 2000 unemployment level in the neighborhood was at 7 percent, a significantly higher number than the citywide unemployment level of 5.8 percent. Both the city and the neighborhood saw unemployment hit a high level in 1990.
