Map: Detroit Neighborhood Opportunity Change 2000 – 2010


The Kirwan Institute at Ohio State University (OSU) has been developing an “opportunity index” for a number of years. In a 2014 presentation to the Kresge Foundation they conducted an analysis of the change in opportunity between 2000 and 2010 for “neighborhoods” (census tracts) in Detroit. There are a number of areas with positive change, but they are very concentrated in Greater Downtown with more absolute negative change focused in outer neighborhoods.
