Population of New Orleans Approaches 300,000
Report Indicates That City Has About 65 Percent of Pre-Katrina Inhabitants
Wednesday, December 26, 2007
NEW ORLEANS -- Despite slow progress in rebuilding some neighborhoods, New Orleans's population is nearing 300,000, or about 65 percent of its pre-Hurricane Katrina size, a new report says.
The report, compiled by urban planning consultancy GCR & Associates and based on utility hookups, estimates the population at 295,450 and predicts it will surpass 300,000 soon. That will put it on par with cities such as Tampa and Pittsburgh and provide a "significant indication of New Orleans' sustained viability as a major city and as an anchor for a large metropolitan area," the report says.
Here is a nice study done which give population information in great detail.

According to statistics, the population as of Aug 2007 in New Orleans was 273,000 - but that does not include illegal workers or illegal immigrants.
Since a census is only as current as the year it was taken, that may have changed drastically since, and especially since Aug did not incude through Dec 2007.
