Dear friends and colleagues,
In April, we released The Coastal Index and presented it to decisionmakers across Southeast Louisiana.
Now we’re releasing our PowerPoint slides to you, so you can incorporate our data into your own presentations.
These slides include:
- Indicators assessing population shifts in coastal areas
- The possibility of a water management economy surrounding our region's efforts to “live with water”
- Economic data showing the strength of our local water management industry and its potential to diversify our economy.
You can find the PowerPoint, along with the full report at:
Bringing you the data you need to make informed decisions,
The Data Center team
Vicki Mack, George Hobor, Ben Horwitz, and Allison Plyer
P.S. In case you missed it, the "Greater New Orleans Community Data Center" is now "The Data Center." In the years since Katrina, our economic and demographic research has revealed that Southeast Louisiana is more interconnected and our local issues are more regional in scope. Our new brand reflects our growing regional interconnections. Along with it, we've got a new web site that makes our expanding collection of research easier to sort through. Check it out at: www.datacenterresearch.org
The Data Center is supported in part by Baptist Community Ministries, blue moon fund, Foundation for Louisiana, Greater New Orleans Foundation, Keller Family Foundation, Institute for Mental Hygiene, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Kabacoff Family Foundation, Methodist Health Systems Foundation, Metropolitan Opportunities Fund, RosaMary Foundation, Stirling Properties, United Way of Southeast Louisiana, Walton Family Foundation, Zemurray Foundation, and data users like you.
