new orleans tourismNew Orleans has made a population recovery since Hurricane Katrina.

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:

  • Asia = 35%
  • Europe = 13%
  • Other = 6%

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting.
