Dear friends and colleagues,
Today, The Data Center concludes Placing Prosperity: Neighborhoods and Life Expectancy in the New Orleans Metro, a three-part report on how neighborhoods shape people's chances to live long, healthy, and prosperous lives. Previously, we looked at gaps in life expectancy from neighborhood to neighborhood, then explored how our neighborhoods got that way. This release wraps up with how our neighborhoods might shape our own life chances—and what the implications mean for inclusive regional prosperity.
As we remember the 15th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we remain in a devastating pandemic and historic recession. Especially during periods of crisis and recovery, reflecting on what makes the links between health, economic opportunity, race, and place so persistent remains critical to reducing inequity.
