The University of Michigan Displaced New Orleans Residents Study will gather information
from 1800 respondents who lived in selected addresses in Orleans Parish in August 2005 at
the time that Hurricane Katrina struck the city. The interviews are expected to average
60 minutes and they will be conducted by phone when possible. Because we have to
locate residents from three years ago, we anticipate the need for a large amount of tracking,
both online and face-to-face, and will be staffing those positions as well.
