The average household size in Jordan has historically been higher than the citywide average. This remained true in 2000, when the neighborhood had an average household size of 3.6 people per household as compared to 2.3 people per household in the city.

Although Jordan's population grew between 1980 and 2000, the number of households in the neighborhood has gone down. The majority of people there live in family households, but the number of those family households is down a bit. Still, family households remained the largest portion of Jordan's overall household composition. During that same 20-year period, the number of people living alone who are 65 years of age and older decreased, as did the number of other neighborhood residents living alone. Also, residences where unrelated people live together saw declines.

Historically, the percentage of people living alone has been substantially lower in Jordan than in Minneapolis. In 2000, 19 percent of the neighborhood's household residents lived alone while 40 percent of household residents citywide did. Jordan's percentage decreased from a high of 27 percent in 1980.

Jordan also has a lower proportion of seniors living alone than the city does, and this percentage has decreased drastically since 1980. At 18 percent, Jordan's percentage people 65-plus living alone in 2000 was about half of the citywide percentage. The neighborhood's low percentage reflects a decrease in the overall elderly population.

The proportion of Jordan families with children and adolescents under 18 increased from 43 percent in 1990 to 66 percent in 2000. That put the neighborhood's percentage well above the proportion in Minneapolis, where half of all families have children under 18.
