Kenwood historically has had more people per household than Minneapolis, but the neighborhood's average household size decreased to 2.5 people between 1980 and 1990 and then remained there in 2000. The citywide average household size, on the other hand, was the same in 1980 and 1990, but it increased in 2000.

Between 1980 and 2000 the number of Kenwood households experienced a sharp decrease, falling 15 percent. And although family households remained the majority, households of younger people living alone tended to increase in 2000.

The proportion of householders living alone in Kenwood followed citywide trends, with a gradual increase between 1980 and 2000. However, the proportion is much lower in the neighborhood than in the city. In 2000, the percentage of residents living alone in Kenwood was about half the percentage citywide.

Fewer senior residents lived alone in Kenwood than Minneapolis. This group fell to 6 percent of the total senior population in the neighborhood in 1990 due to an overall increase of residents 65 and over. In 2000, as the older population decreased, the proportion of seniors living alone rose by 10 percent, but they did not reach the 1980 level.

In 1990 and 2000, the percentage of families with children under 18 years old was barely lower in Kenwood than citywide. The city's percentage tended to increase from 1980 to 2000. In Kenwood, the proportion remained the same in 2000 as in 1980, with a decrease in 1990.
