Labor force

Between 1980 and 1990, Standish's population in the labor force (those employed or unemployed and looking for work in the civilian labor force, along with those in the armed forces) increased steadily while remaining just below the city's average. By 2000 the neighborhood surpassed Minneapolis with 75 percent of its population over the age of 16 in the labor force, compared to 72 percent citywide.

For all three decades, Standish had a lower overall unemployment rate than Minneapolis. The unemployment rate for Standish increased from 4.7 percent in 1980 to 5.8 percent in 1990; in 2000 the rate fell to 5.3 percent.
