The Growth Occupations: Opportunities for More Equitable Participation in Detroit’s Growing Economy report identifies Metro Detroit’s growth occupations, illustrates the inequitable access to this set of fast-growing well-paying jobs, and offers solutions to better connect Detroit’s workers to the region’s growing occupations. Growth Occupations builds upon the findings from The State of Economic in the Detroit report to further investigate pathways for Detroiters to enter the middle class and participate in the region’s growing economy.
This report was produced in partnership with Brookings Metro and is funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
