Independent Analysis for Informed Decisions in Southeast Louisiana

aka The Data Center   |   New Orleans, LA   |  http://www.datacenterresearch.org/

Mission

The Data Center, a product of Nonprofit Knowledge Works, makes informed decisions possible. The Data Center helps build communities that are both prosperous and inclusive in three ways. First, we gather data from multiple, established sources. Then, we analyze that data by connecting the dots to identify the latest demographic, economic, quality of life, and sustainability trends. Finally, we put our findings in the hands of community leaders, policy makers, journalists and the general public to develop a common understanding and to lay a solid foundation for sustainable solutions.

New Orleans Neighborhood Data

Easy look–up tables of Census 2000 and 2010, American Community Survey 2012–2016, and 2015 Local Employment Dynamics data for each New Orleans neighborhood statistical area — great background info for grantwriters and neighborhood leaders. Includes data on housing and housing costs, income and poverty, transportation, educational attainment, language, employment, and more.

Population(s) Served

This brief examines the most current demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau and identifies important trends in the eight metro area parishes - Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany and St. James Parishes. Featuring new analyses on internet access, youth population, commuting, Hispanic origin, and housing stock alongside updated analyses for homeownership, poverty, household income and much more.

Population(s) Served

Data covering the impact of Hurricane Katrina, the extent of the housing damage, the gap in recovery funding, and the current state of the recovery in the city and the region.

Population(s) Served

Given the multiple shocks this region has suffered since 2005, the tenth anniversary of Katrina is an appropriate time to assess how the region has recovered from Katrina, and whether the city and metro area are fortifying the capacities necessary to be resilient in the face of any shock. Indeed since 2005, the prevalence of large scale disasters worldwide has drawn the attention of decisionmakers at every level. The lessons learned from New Orleans’ recovery experience can inform how the world not only responds to future disasters, but also how it builds the resiliency capacities needed to withstand any shock. Our indicators suggest that while the New Orleans economy is rebounding, and in some ways better than before, several social and environmental trends may test New Orleans’ resilience capacity in the future. Explore over thirty indicators measuring greater New Orleans’ progress toward prosperity through economic growth, inclusion, quality of life, and sustainability.

Population(s) Served

This report is a statistical snapshot of the well-being of New Orleans children/youth, designed to inform the development of strategies that can improve the academic, social, and behavioral outcomes of children/youth age 0 to 24.

Population(s) Served

The Coastal Index 2017 measures economic, social, and political factors that have been shown to affect the formations of clusters in the U.S., as well as provides a roadmap for how leaders can build on strengths and address weaknesses to create a self-sustaining water management cluster for Louisiana.

Population(s) Served

As New Orleans completes her 300th year, the tricentennial is an important moment to reflect on the city’s history and achievements. But in addition to celebrating their storied past, New Orleanians are eager to learn from it. While economic inclusion was not the focus of the city’s first 250 years, economic inclusion is increasingly important for fostering growth in developed economies. New research suggests that U.S. cities and regions that offer greater equality of opportunity experience greater economic growth, by maximizing the potential of their human capital, and minimizing the fiscal costs of exclusion.17 With this mounting evidence in mind, this edition of The Prosperity Index examines the question: “Have African American New Orleanians experienced increased economic inclusion since the end of the Civil Rights era?”
