The Detroit Economic Outlook for 2021-2027 reports Detroit is holding up in the national economy, in part due to development projects and demands in the auto industry.

The report says Detroit is headed for a faster economic recovery than the state of Michigan through 2023. That includes a job growth in 2021-23.

The report finds jobs in manufacturing, construction and transportation are factors in keeping the economy afloat. This economic forecast was put together by a collaboration between several universities. A presentation about the findings will be held at the Revenue Estimating Conference on September 12 at the Erma L. Henderson Auditorium.
