Overview

Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: New OrleansMetairieKenner is a metropolitan area designated by the United States Census encompassing seven parishes (the Louisiana equivalent of other states' counties) in the state of Louisiana, centering on the city of New Orleans. As of the July 1, 2008 estimate, the metropolitan statistical area (MSA) had a population of 3.17 million; the combined statistical area (CSA), which adds Washington Parish, had a population of 1.18 million; and the ten-parish area (including Tangipahoa and St. James Parishes) used by GNO, Inc. (the regional chamber of commerce) had a population of 3.32 million. The metropolitan area was hit by Hurricane Katrina - a Category 3 storm at landfall - in August 2005.

Most of the decline in population to 3.17 million is accounted for by the decline in population experienced in the city of New Orleans proper (coterminous with Orleans Parish); the Census Bureau estimates that the city's population dropped from 453,728 prior to the storm (July 1, 2005) to 336,644 at the most recent estimate for 2008. For U.S. Census purposes, this MSA includes seven parishes: Jefferson, Orleans (coterminous with the city of New Orleans), Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, St. Charles, and St. John the Baptist. The Census Bureau's CSA (combined statistical area) adds Washington. The New Orleans region's chamber of commerce, GNO, Inc. (formerly Metrovision) includes the eight parishes o...
