Census shows that New Orleans is whiter and wealthier
Hurricane Katrina drained the New Orleans metropolitan area of almost 40% of its residents and left the region with a whiter, wealthier and older population, according to the first Census Bureau estimates since the devastating flooding.

The special survey released today shows the New Orleans area, made up of seven parishes, became 73% white in the months after the hurricane Aug. 29, up from about 59% before the storm. The black population dropped from about 37% to 22%. The median age increased by about four years, and the median annual income rose from $39,793 to $43,447.

3. Yet Nagins still won
White people who live in major cities are more liberal than white people who live in suburbs.
