Detroit, Michigan Overview

Detroit, Michigan is currently home to over 680,000 people. The Metro area is considered a transportation, business and cultural hub that best represents the city’s intense history. In the 1950s, Detroit’s economy was at an all-time high due to the boom of the automobile industry. Rapid expansion of the city continued for several decades until the large manufacturing companies left and expanded their services in other parts of the country.

Since then, the city has been unable to cope with employment trends for Detroit jobs. This was apparent in the decline in population, failed property tax payments and the declaration of financial emergency by the state's governor in March of 2013.

The cost of living in Detroit, MI is 27percent lower than the national average. Out all the essential living components, housing costs are the lowest compared to other states, coming in at 79 percent. This is due to the vast local majority who were unable to pay property taxes in 2013. Utilities and transportation rank slightly higher than the national average because of the city’s inability to maintain its infrastructure. Heath and grocery costs are generally on par with other progressive cities.
