...in case anyone is keeping track:

"The New Orleans area, recovering from Hurricane Katrina, grew by 4 percent or nearly 40,000 people, putting it 16th in terms of raw numbers but eighth for percentage growth. During the same survey last year, the population of New Orleans dropped by nearly 290,000 people."

The mayor and other entities here in N.O. are contesting the U.S. Census figures...say they're too low and need to be adjusted so that the area qualifies for programs and grants. The consensus seems to be that the mayor is right about this.
