Voices From the Water's Edge
- Is New Orleans different now 10 years post-Katrina than it was before Katrina?
- Who stayed in NOLA after Katrina? WHY did they stay?
- What factors contributed to decisions to stay? Rebuild or not rebuild?
- What does census data/economic data tell us? How (or is?) NOLA different 10 years post-Katrina?
- What are the educational and economic situations in NOLA now? Education, health, basic services (electricity, gas, hospitals for instance lost medical records in the Hurricane), population distribution relative to police units & crime? How does the current status of these system level resources compare to other cities of similar size and characteristics?
- Do first person accounts and oral histories of residents who stayed in NOLA align with census and economic data?
