 Population
 
70% of the city’s pre-Katrina population has returned.
i
 
 
Not surprisingly, the lowest rates of return are in neighborhoods that experienced the worstflooding.
 
 The poor, Black, and heavily-flooded areas of New Orleans East, Gentilly, and Bywater have thelowest repopulation rate (38%). Almost 10,000 former residents are still displaced from theseareas.
 
Several neighborhoods spared the worst flooding actually have slightly higher populations thanbefore the levees broke. New Aurora/English Turn and small sections of the French Quarterand Central City have gained a few hundred new residents in the past two years.Economy 
 
 While the area has added 56,000 jobs since the first Recovery Report Card, there are still around134,000 fewer jobs than before Hurricane Katrina, when the area had over 630,000 jobs.
ii
 
 
Public transportation is still 40%
iii
below pre-Katrina capacity, only one additional public transitroute reopened since August 2006.
