Report: Giving Voice to the People of New Orleans: The Kaiser Post-Katrina Baseline Survey

This May 2007 Kaiser Family Foundation report is the first of several that will track the progress and challenges facing people living in the New Orleans area in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. To conduct the study, a team of 41 interviewers visited 456 randomly selected census areas, documented the physical condition of nearly 17,000 housing locations and completed interviews with 1,504 randomly chosen adults living in the four parishes between September and November 2006. The survey’s margin of sampling error is plus or minus four percentage points.
