Rust Wire has an interesting article on innovation clusters in the Rust Belt. Measuring innovation as patents per Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) between 2006 and 2010, the Detroit-Warren-Livonia MSA comes righ between the Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos and the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington MSAs with 9316 patents. If we add the 2037 patents from the Ann Arbor MSA the region surges to 8th place: right after Chicago and before the Twin Cites.
