Displaced New Orleans Residents Pilot Study (DNORPS)


The Displaced New Orleans Residents Pilot Study (DNORPS) is a brand new dataset added to the ICPSR-hosted website "Data Sharing for Demographic Research". Access appears to be available to all users, not just ICPSR member institutions.

The Displaced New Orleans study was a 2006 pilot study "designed to examine the current location, well-being, and plans of people who lived in the city of New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina struck on August 29, 2005. The study is based on a representative sample of pre-Katrina dwellings in New Orleans. Fieldwork focused on tracking respondents wherever they currently resided, including back to New Orleans. "

Data are available at the Census Tract level and for households and individuals.
