What is D3’s Open Data Portal and how do I use it?

D3's Open Data Portal is a raw data gateway for exploration and downloading.  With topics ranging from property to poverty, the portal has over 200 datasets, covering Detroit, Windsor, and Michigan.  Many of these datasets include links to detailed descriptions of meta-data to help you make the best use of your information request. To search the Open Data Portal for data, simply type a term into the search bar at the top of the page. Once you’ve clicked on a dataset, you can create charts, scroll or read through the data table at your leisure. Quick Hint: To download the dataset just click the “Download Dataset” button to the right of the title.   Don’t see what you’re looking for?  Send us an AskD3 request - it may be something we just haven’t gotten around to putting up yet!
