One D[etroit] Scorecard and the Southeast Michigan Regional Opportunity Index
In May 2014, D3 launched the 2014 One D Scorecard, an online tool that reports on the status of our region through key data indicators in five Priority Areas: Economic Prosperity, Educational Preparedness, Quality of Life, Social Equity, and Regional Transit. The One D Index also rolls up the over 30 outcome-based indicators composing the five Priority areas into a single comprehensive score to better understand how metro Detroit stacks up across priority areas and other regions overall. Moreover, the One D Scorecard now includes the Southeast Michigan Regional Opportunity Index, developed by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University, providing an indicator of opportunity at the census tract level in the Detroit metropolitan area. The One D Scorecard aims to increase access to information, inform civic dialogue, and track progress on shared goals for our region.
