Report: New Orleans Three Years After the Storm: The Second Kaiser Post-Katrina Survey, 2008

This comprehensive Kaiser Family Foundation survey is the second of at least three that the Foundation will conduct to track New Orleans residents’ experiences and views as the city rebuilds after Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent levee breaches that devastated huge sections in August 2005. By providing an over-time assessment of residents’ experiences, priorities, goals, and concerns, the Foundation hopes to give people a continuing chance to report on how the recovery effort is affecting them, to inform leaders of the public’s priorities, and to maintain national attention on the efforts to rebuild New Orleans.

Designed and analyzed by Foundation researchers, the new survey was fielded house to house and by telephone in Spring 2008 among 1,294 residents of Orleans Parish.
