Population losses between 1980 and 2000 in Ericsson resulted in a decrease of almost half of the senior residents and more than 10 percent of children and adolescents. A 4 percent growth of the adult population did not offset this loss. The working-age adult population grew slowly, especially because the 18- to 24-year-old population decreased by about 54 percent.

The ethnic makeup of the population did not change substantially between 1980 and 2000. Although the white population decreased, it was still the majority in 2000. The neighborhood's white population, which comprised about 96 percent of Ericsson's total ethnic makeup in 1980, dropped to 82 percent in 2000. The Hispanic population increased from 1.4 percent in 1980 to about 6 percent in 2000. The black population in Ericsson increased from 0.5 percent in 1980 to around 6 percent in 2000.
