New Orleans Death Rate Up Nearly 50% Since Katrina

In New Orleans, a new study shows the city death rate has risen nearly fifty percent since Hurricane Katrina. The study is the first to track the mortality rate of both evacuees and remaining residents. Researchers attribute the increase to the lack of health care for low-income residents regardless of whether they left or stayed in New Orleans.
