Dear friends and colleagues,
We've been hearing a lot of talk about how neighborhoods are changing in New Orleans. They are!
While Census data struggles to keep up with the pace of change, it is the most authoritative data to use if you are writing grants. So we wanted you to know that we have the most up-to-date demographic data for New Orleans neighborhoods on our (recently updated) web site.
You can find 2008-2012 Census ACS data on income, poverty, educational attainment, and more for all New Orleans neighborhoods!
Alongside the updated data you'll find our fun widgets for calculating statistical significance, and tips on how to write about this data in your grant proposals.
Check out our updated Neighborhood Statistical Area Data Profiles (under Data Resources) at:
Bringing you the data you need to make informed decisions,
The Data Center team
Allison Plyer, Vicki Mack, George Hobor, and Ben Horwitz
P.S. Our new website and brand are a reflection of how interconnected Southeast Louisiana has become. But we haven’t forgotten our roots! We still make all of our original New Orleans data products available on our web site, including our wildly popular “Neighborhood Data Profiles.”
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.
