Between 1979 and 1999, the percentage of people living below the poverty level in Webber-Camden rose from 12 percent to 19 percent, hitting a low of 10 percent in 1989. Similarly, between 1979 and 1999 the neighborhood percentage of people age 65 years and older living in poverty increased from 15 percent to 18 percent, with a low of 11 percent in 1989. When compared to the percentages for Minneapolis during this time, the numbers were comparable with two notable exceptions: Minneapolis had a significantly higher percentage of people living in poverty in 1989, and a significantly lower percentage for people 65 and older living in poverty in 1999.

In 1979, the percentage of Webber-Camden families living in poverty was very comparable to the Minneapolis percentage. In 1989, however, the neighborhood's figure dropped to 6 percent while the city's rose to 14 percent. Similarly in 1989, the proportion of families with children under 18 in poverty dropped to 8 percent for Webber-Camden and rose to 24 percent in the city. By 1999, this trend reversed and Webber-Camden had higher overall percentages of families living in poverty than Minneapolis.
