Would You Move to Detroit?

WDET, a public radio station broadcasting from Wayne State University in Detroit, created and fielded a non-scientific survey , "What would it take to get you to move to the city of Detroit?" Expecting about 1,000 people to respond, they got more than they anticipated: 2,200 people completed a portion of the survey; 1,700 completed the entire questionnaire.

"The majority of respondents said the following factors, if addressed, might influence them in considering a move to Detroit: lowered crime, better city services, better neighborhoods, better schools, less government corruption, better shopping, better public transportation, and increased walkability."

See the survey questions and results on the WDET site.
