Economic Equity Indicators Update 2023

November 16, 2023

Detroit Future City (DFC) releases the first update to its web-based Economic Equity Dashboard, since its launch in 2021, which coincided with the release of the State of Economic Equity in Detroit report.

The Economic Equity Dashboard identifies 22 indicators across several focus areas – income and wealth building, access to quality employment, business and entrepreneurship, education, health, and neighborhood and housing in addition to including data on the regional economic context.

The indicators illustrate the inequities that exist across the city and broadly within metro Detroit by race/ethnicity as well as by geography. This also marks the first update since the pandemic, providing insight into the impact of COVID-19 on key equity issues.

DFC’s Center for Equity, Engagement, and Research is funded by The Kresge Foundation, Hudson-Webber Foundation, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and JP Morgan Chase & Co.
