The labor market impact of Hurricane Katrina: an overview
Hurricane Katrina struck the gulf coast on August 29, 2005, causing unprecedented damage and resulting in the relocation of more than a million people.
The displacement of people and destruction of property complicated the collection of labor force information from households and businesses in our employment programs. A further description of the Bureau of Labor Statistics adjustments to data collection and estimation methodologies for Katrina-affected areas is available in accompanying articles in this issue of the Monthly Labor Review or online at www.bls.gov/katrina.
This overview was prepared by staff members from several data programs in the Bureau of Labor Statistics and was assembled by Karen Kosanovich. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
