Detroit is another place in the Wolverine State that has some real eye-opening numbers. The unemployment rate in Detroit is a staggering 24.9%, but at least those who have jobs earn a modest salary ($25,764 a year). Homes are actually priced respectfully at $42,300, but still far lower than the state average.
Crime in Detroit is bad, but not horrible.
