The percentage of Folwell residents living in poverty grew from 1979 to 1999. The fastest growth took place between 1989 and 1999, a time when the percentage of people living in poverty citywide declined. While 6 percent of people in Folwell lived in poverty in 1979, 16 percent did 20 years later. The difference between city and neighborhood, which was 8 percent in 1979, narrowed in 1999 with Folwell at 16 percent – just 1 percent below the citywide percentage. For people 65 years old and older living in poverty, the neighborhood moved in the same direction as the city. Folwell's percentage declined from 10 percent in 1980 to 7 percent in 2000, remaining below the citywide percentage.

The neighborhood percentage of families living in poverty grew progressively from a low of 5 percent of all families and 3 percent of families with children in 1979 to a high of 13 percent for the former and 19 percent for the latter in 1999. In the process, the percentage for all families in poverty surpassed the citywide percentage in 1999 and reached the same percentage as the city for families with children under 18.
