Labor force

Between 1980 and 2000, the proportion of Seward's population in the labor force (those employed or those unemployed and seeking a job) has closely mirrored the city's. In 2000, 72.5 percent of Seward's population over the age of 16 participated in the labor force. In Minneapolis 72.1 percent of residents over the age of 16 participated in the labor force.

Seward experienced a sharp increase in unemployment in 1990. By 2000, the neighborhood's unemployment rate dropped back below 1980 levels to 3.3 percent, which is also lower than the 2000 citywide unemployment rate of 5.8 percent.
