Detroit Poverty Maps 1980 vs. 2010

Urban Institute Detroit Poverty Maps

Urban Institute’s map database that shows comparisons of major metro areas in Michigan between 1980 and 2010. Each dot represents 20 people living under the poverty line. Colors represent ethnicity: Blue dots are White; yellow dots are Black; green dots are Latino; and red dots are Asian. It appears that Detroit’s poverty has spread over time as well as become concentrated among minority groups.
