Between 1979 and 1989, the neighborhood followed the citywide poverty trends, but with higher rates. From 1989 to 1999, rates sharply dropped to almost or below city levels. In 1999 the neighborhood proportion of families with children below the poverty level was 15 percent, compared to 19 percent citywide. The percentage of families below poverty level in the neighborhood was 15 percent, higher than the citywide rate of 12 percent.

The percentage of people below poverty level in Stevens Square-Loring Heights is high, increasing sharply in 1989 and then decreasing a decade later to its lowest level in 20 years. Still in 1999, 21 percent of the neighborhood's people were below the poverty level compared to 17 percent citywide.

While the proportion of seniors below the poverty level declined steadily since 1979, in 1999 it was still much higher than the proportion citywide.
