Detroit by the Numbers

There’s lots of talk out there about the city of Detroit and the region, but what can be validated with reliable data?

To find out, join WDET and Data Driven Detroit (D3) in our new multimedia series, “Detroit By the Numbers.” We’ll put our urban — and suburban — myths to the test and separate fact from fiction. This multimedia feature series offers timely, data-supported analysis and smart perspectives to help drive informed conversation about the social issues we face as a region.
