Detroit Kids Data

Okay, I’m quickly becoming the boring poster. I just can’t escape my data and research background.

You should visit Detroit Kids Data, an informational resource of children, family and community for Metro Detroit. Developed by Wayne State University (and the brilliant Kurt Metzger, director of the Michigan Metropolitan Information Center), DKD provides data for social demographics, community health, education, child welfare, etc.

The site is great for health and social service professionals, educators, grantwriters, community advocates and, hey, maybe even government officials could take a look.

More about MMIC: They have some great thematic maps and a GIS mapping-database system for income, voting, crime and building permits.

So have a look around, you know you want to. I can’t be the only geek.

    Great site, Stacey! Like you, I also very much enjoy research and statistics, so sites like this are right up my alley.
