The percentage of people in poverty was substantially higher in Hawthorne than in Minneapolis between 1980 and 2000. The neighborhood was 7 percent higher in 1980; this figure continued to rise, and in 2000 the percentage of people below the poverty level was about 24 percent more in Hawthorne than throughout Minneapolis. Hawthorne's percentage of people 65 years and older in poverty was higher than Minneapolis' in 1980, but in 2000 the neighborhood level decreased to the city level. The change is due in large part to the neighborhood's shrinking senior population.

Hawthorne was consistently higher than Minneapolis in the percentage of families below the poverty level and the percentage of families with children under 18 below the poverty level.
