Long-Term Mobility and Wellbeing of New Orleans Residents after Hurricane Katrina

Research Project Description

Two key tasks will be undertaken at the University of Michigan as part of this project. First, we will collaborate with the Elizabeth Fussell and other staff at Brown University as well as with staff at the U.S. Census Bureau to design and implement the analysis of linked data from the Decennial Census, the American Community Survey, and other federal data in order to evaluate the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the population of New Orleans. Second, we will participate with other members of the research team in preparing manuscripts describing our data, research methods, and results; presenting these findings at academic conferences and other venues; and publishing the manuscripts in leading social science journals.
