About the Talk

Dr. Rendall will present a joint work with Narayan Sastry, University of Michigan and RAND.  They examine factors differentiating who returned to New Orleans among displaced residents of the city in the four years after Hurricane Katrina, and also examine the timing of initial returns and of subsequent moves away from the city among those who initially returned.  The aim of their work is to provide a picture of this dynamic process using new data from 2009-2010 Displaced New Orleans Residents Study (DNORS). They also provide an overview of DNORS and key results regarding the study's response rate, factors associated with non-response, and weights that correct for non-response.  The focus is on disparities in displacement and return by race, by socioeconomic status, and by neighborhood factors such as flood damage.
