                                    Survey Results for Coastal Louisiana

     The study was conducted for the Harvard School of Public Health via telephone by ICR, an independent
      research company. Interviews were conducted from June 18 to July 10, 2007, among a representative
         sample of 1004 respondents age 18 and older in coastal counties of Louisiana. Interviewing was
      conducted in all counties within twenty miles of the coastline. In the New Orleans metropolitan area,
      interviews were conducted with adults from cellphone-only households, as well from households with
       landline telephones. The margin of error for the total sample is +/- 3.4 percentage points at the 95%
                                                 confidence level.
