Dear friends and colleagues, 
When the Census Bureau released 2014 data on poverty, educational attainment, housing costs, and more, The Data Center utilized new technologies to answer one of your most frequent questions: Who Lives in New Orleans and Metro Parishes Now?
Using the Census API for data downloading, Google Sheets for analysis, and Google Scripts/Ajax for publishing, we set up a coding architecture such that "Who Lives" will automatically update each year when the Census releases new data. This is just one of the ways we leverage technology to disseminate high-demand data to the entire Greater New Orleans community.
So without further ado we present Who Lives in New Orleans and Metro Parishes Now? In this year’s edition, you will find analyses for:
  • homeownership
  • poverty and child poverty
  • median household income
  • youth population
  • commuting
  • housing stock
  • internet access
  • hispanic origin
  • and much more
