This project collects data to examine how a group of low-income parents from New Orleans, most of whom are single African American women, have coped with the effects of Hurricane Katrina. The 1,019 low-income parents in the sample are part of a randomized intervention, which was started before Hurricane Katrina, and provides pre-hurricane information on the health, social networks, and economic status of members of the treatment and control groups. This project conducts one post-hurricane follow-up survey and set of qualitative interviews, and collects another wave of data shortly after the three-year anniversary of the hurricane.
