The U.S. Census Bureau has revised its estimates of the number of people who lived in Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard parishes in mid-2007!
This provides a morale booster to all who have come back to rebuild, as well as steering additional federal funding to the region.
The revised estimate of the city's population on July 1, 2007, went from 239,124 to 288,113! That is an increase of more than 20 %.
