Belle Isle

The purpose of the Regional Scorecard is to provide a comprehensive look at the status of the region through key indicators that align with the five priority areas of One D: Economic Prosperity, Educational Preparedness, Quality of Life, Social Equity and Regional Transit. The Scorecard monitors Southeast Michigan’s performance in over 120 outcome-based indicators.

Through the Scorecard, One D aims to increase access to key information, foster a more informed civic dialogue, track progress on shared regional goals and report on change within the indicators.

By providing this information we hope to stimulate discussion about where we are today and where we hope to take the Detroit region in the future. This year, we have ranked ourselves against other metropolitan areas and states to provide more meaningful context.

This scorecard is intended to serve as a baseline against which we can begin to compare our progress over time, relative to ourselves and to other regions. For more information about changes to this year’s scorecard methodology, data sets and sources, please click on the “methodology” tab.
