Map: Children’s Neighborhoods in Detroit

children-nhoods-3

When the Skillman Foundation launched the “Good Neighborhoods” Initiative in 2006 they focused on the areas of Detroit that had high numbers of children and high rates of poverty. I assume that they utilized 2000 Census data and wanted to check if there was any significant shift. While I did not run a test of statistical significance of Detroit’s child population, it is a very simple analysis to see that there are still large populations of children (absolute numbers) in the “good neighborhoods.” The Far Eastside and University District areas are the only that appear to have high numbers of children that are not within a Skillman Good Neighborhood.
