Detroit is the biggest city in the state of Michigan. With an area of 370.1 km², you would expect a high population count, but as you already guessed, that isn’t the case in Detroit. Whether its due to the skyrocketing crime rates or lack of career opportunities, Detroit saw a population decline of 5.78% within the latest decade.
