Between 1980 and 2000, the majority of households in Shingle Creek were families. The number of family households decreased, even though they remained a large portion of Shingle Creek's overall household composition. The number of people living alone increased, whether they were over or under age 65. Households of people who live together but are not related to each other also increased slightly between 1980 and 1990.

The percentage of people living alone was lower in Shingle Creek than in Minneapolis between 1980 and 2000, but it increased at a faster rate than the city. In 1980 only 15 percent of Shingle Creek residents lived alone compared to 38 percent citywide, and in 2000, 25 percent of Shingle Creek residents lived alone compared to 40 percent citywide.

Shingle Creek has a low proportion of seniors living alone, and this proportion remained fairly stable since 1980 in spite of an increase in the overall elderly population. In 2000 at 25 percent, Shingle Creek had a lower percentage of households with people 65 or older living alone than the citywide percentage of 37 percent.

The proportion of families with children under 18 decreased in Shingle Creek from 43 percent in 1980 to 41 percent in 1990, and then increased to 48 percent in 2000. The neighborhood proportion of families with children is slightly smaller than Minneapolis', where 50 percent of the families have children under 18.
