Between 1980 and 2000, Marcy-Holmes' population grew by 4 percent. That was slightly more than the citywide growth of 3 percent. In 1993, after the 1990 Census of Population and Housing, the City Council approved to extend the neighborhood's boundaries to include 88 people that in 1990 were part of University of Minnesota neighborhood. The boundary change explains in large degree the neighborhood growth. By 2000 the neighborhood added 112 more people that would have belonged to a different neighborhood had the borders remained unchanged.

Between 1980 and 2000, Marcy-Holmes saw a 7 percent increase of adult residents between the ages of 18 and 64. This rise was especially pronounced in the 18-to-24 and 45-to-64 age groups. During this period, the elderly population decreased, with the greatest declines seen in those aged 64 to 84 years of age. There were also fewer children and adolescents in 2000 than in 1980.

Marcy-Holmes' ethnic makeup has diversified a bit since 1980. Every ethnic population saw growth between 1980 and 2000, except whites. The largest increase was in the Asian population, with significant increases in the black and Hispanic populations.
