Detroit Future City ‘The State of Economic Equity in Detroit’ and Economic Equity Dashboard
The Economic Equity Dashboard identifies 22 indicators across several focus areas that illustrate the inequities that exist across the city and broadly within metro Detroit by race/ethnicity as well as by geography.
- There was improvement in capital access for small businesses, vacancy rates, the homeownership rate and cost burden by income.
- Median household income and average home values remained steady, hampering upward mobility into the middle class.
- Job growth, the labor market, life expectancy and educational competency weakened in the city, highlighting persistent and growing inequities that show the hard-hitting impact of the pandemic, particularly for Black Detroiters.
