Dr. Bronars Analyzes The Evacuation Divide Post Katrina
Dr. Stephen Bronars publishes “Ten Years after Katrina: African Americans in New Orleans and the Evacuation Divide” in Forbes, analyzing residents’ access to vehicles ten years after hurricane Katrina devastated the region leaving many stranded.
In particular, he compares the percentage of New Orleans residents that did not have access to vehicles both at the time of Katrina and now, to the lack of access by residents in other counties most frequently hit by hurricanes. He further provides a comparison of these findings by race and age.
Dr. Bronars finds that while access to vehicles has improved in New Orleans post-Katrina, the percentage of residents without access to vehicles remains dramatically lower than in other regions where hurricanes are common.
