Poverty

In 1979 and 1989, a much lower percentage of people lived in poverty in the neighborhood than in the city. In 1999, the neighborhood stopped following the city trend and rose to a high level of 34 percent. Poverty for the group of 65 and over was nonexistent in the neighborhood in 1989, but in 1999 the percentage of that group living in poverty rose to 19 percent, higher than the city level of 11 percent.

In 1979 and 1989, a very low percentage of families and families with children lived in poverty in Northeast Park compared to the percentages in Minneapolis. In 1999, the percentage of neighborhood families living in poverty skyrocketed to levels not seen before and surpassed the city rates, while the city rates were in fact declining. In 1999, 25 percent of all families and 40 percent of families with children in the neighborhood were below the poverty level while in the city they were at 12 percent and 19 percent respectively.
