As metro Detroit moves forward, our region will be defined not only by changes that began in the twentieth century but also by new and emerging trends. Detroit simultaneously faces a legacy of significant problems and an opportunity for real innovation. The local and national dialogue about Detroit has shifted from themes of declining industry and population loss to stories of rising efforts to both rebuild and adapt, using everything from small businesses to urban agriculture.
This region must work together to develop a common narrative that respects our diverse histories, while establishing a new set of shared experiences. Our ability to do so successfully requires that we first understand our metropolis objectively and then act in agreement on that common knowledge. We believe that the most direct path to objective consensus is through data. D3 has brought together twelve months of demographic maps and visualizations, using our extensive library of data sets, to provide a common understanding of our region as we build our future together.
