According to new information provided by Michael Hecht of GNO Inc, the city is leading the country in population growth over the past five years, with 46% of that increase coming from Latin America.

New Orleans also leads all cities with foreign-born population growth.

Below is the information provided by Hecht: 

According to most recent U.S. Census data, New Orleans is #3 amongst all major US cities in population growth, from 2010 – 2015.  As this measurement period starts five years after Hurricane Katrina, it indicates that the in-migration is more than a “rebound” phenomenon.  Moreover, New Orleans is #1 in foreign-born population growth, from 2010 – 2015.  The originating locations for these new citizens are:

  • Latin-America = 46%
  • Asia = 35%
