Resettlement and Well-Being of New Orleans Residents After Hurricane Katrina

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   Narayan Sastry, William H. Frey

This project uses restricted data from the 2005 and 2006 rounds of the Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) to conduct an exploratory examination of (1) the current location of people who resided in New Orleans prior to Hurricane Katrina and (2) changes in the well-being of this population from before to after the storm. The restricted data allow us to examine how individual and family factors, as well as local neighborhood characteristics, shaped residents' choices about where to resettle. The project also examines various indicators of health status and family and economic well-being of displaced New Orleans residents. Data comparability issues are assessed, as well as the effectiveness of using propensity score weighting techniques to model the population effects of Hurricane Katrina.

Funding Period: 07/01/2008 to 08/31/2012

Country of Focus: USA
