Crossing the 300 000 threshold

Crossing the 300,000 Threshold

  • Exceeding the 300,000 threshold is a milestone and restores New Orleans to a cohort of major cities like Pittsburgh, Tampa, Anaheim and St. Louis

  • In the first two months of 2008, New Orleans successfully demonstrated that it had the capacity to host major sporting and cultural events, proving that the tourism industry is returning to its pre-storm strength

  • As more recovery dollars begin to flow in 2008, the city will become more attractive to individuals and businesses trying to capitalize on the economic opportunities at hand

Pace of population growth

Pace of Population Growth

  • In February 2008, the population of the City is estimated to be about 302,000 - approximately 43,000 greater than the February 2007 estimate

  • While the population of the City continues to grow, it appears that the rate of return is beginning to slow when compared to the earlier months of the year

  • The current rate of return suggests that 2,000 residents are now returning on a monthly basis

  • The number of housing units under renovation suggests that this trend will continue in the months ahead

Snapshots of Recovery

The following slides illustrate resettlement patterns in the city over time: July 2006 through February 2008. These maps demonstrate how repopulation has radiated outward from areas which recovered quickly after the storm.

In each of these maps, red represents areas in which activity is less than 20% of its pre-Katrina level. Green represents areas in which activity is greater than 80% of its pre-Katrina level. Yellow and orange display areas in between.

Boundaries of New Orleans City Council Districts are also displayed.
