Map: Michigan Environmental Justice Percentiles in Detroit

The Office of the Environmental Justice Public Advocate at EGLE has released an extensive and comprehensive interactive mapping tool that explores environmental justice related datasets for Michigan. The project is in draft form and currently open for feedback.

As many of these project show, Detroit is at an extreme disadvantage compared to its neighbors and compared to the rest of the state. Environmental effects, environmental exposure, sensitive populations (asthma, blood lead levels, etc.), and socioeconomic factors all are more heavily weighted in Detroit.
