Requesting information and scheduling interviews:
D3 is happy to share and discuss data featured on our website, but due to our extensive data library, please place your media requests three to five days in advance of when you would like to receive information or conduct an interview. This will provide our experts enough time to analyze the specific data you request. Additional preparation time may be needed for larger projects.
Please also allow 1-2 business days for us to respond to your initial request.
Since March of 2020, D3 has been examining, analyzing, and working to help local communities understand data related to the pandemic. For more information on that project, click here.
Where do we get our data from?
D3 sources our information from many different places depending on the subject and granularity of a data request. Some of our most commonly-used sources include:
How to cite D3?
To help you cite data and information you gather from D3 and our tools, we have put together a few examples to demonstrate common citations that you can adapt for your purposes.
When making a digital in-text citation of data you found on our website or with one of our tools, please reference both Data Driven Detroit and the tool with a link. For example:
The University District is largely owner-occupied, according to Data Driven Detroit’s Housing Information Portal. Most homes are valued over $150,000 and more than a quarter of the residents are over age 65.
If the in-text citation is not digital, use the same format without the link.
If you need to make an APA citation of the source, our tools contain a formatted source. To locate this information, click the “Show data” link below the visualization to see an overview table of the data that built the visualization:
