The Como neighborhood population grew faster than Minneapolis' between 1980 and 2000. The neighborhood population increased 12 percent during this period compared to 3.1 percent in Minneapolis.

Its close proximity to the University of Minnesota has a significant impact on the age composition of Como residents. The 18 to 24-year-old age group, the largest age group in 2000 at 41 percent of the population, was the only age group to increase between 1980 and 2000. It rose 71 percent.

Como's ethnic makeup changed between 1980 and 2000, but not to the degree of other neighborhoods or the City of Minneapolis as a whole. All ethnic groups except white increased in number in this period. The white population was 92 percent in 1980, but fell to 78 percent in 2000. The Asian population increased the most, rising to 10 percent of the neighborhood's population in 2000.
