Population speculation[edit]

About the population issue, the population given out by the U.S. Census Bureau is for permenant residents living in the city only (not the temporarily transients). Unless these people take up residence elsewhere, the census will likely assume that they still live in New Orleans, as long as they reside and pay taxes within the city limits.

Baloney U.S Census Estimates[edit]

Now you know how un exact population estimates are. the 2005 estimates showed baton rouge's population as 224,000 (less than what it exactly is), but it could be alot more that it actually looks. they just probably did an tax payer count, and some people didnt participate.

yeah, but that's only within the city limits. not many people who live in east baton rouge parish actually live within city limits; just drive downtown, and you'll see what i mean. the metropolitan population i think is at about 700,000 people or so. sadly, 224,000 is probably right. the population of baton rouge should increase soon, though, with all the revamping they're doing.

Hurricane Katrina[edit]

Before my edit" Baton Rouge will serve as a headquarters for emergency coordination and disaster relief in Louisiana.

Edited sentence: Baton Rouge will serve as a headquarters for Federal (on site) and State emergency coordination and disaster relief in Louisiana.

My inclusion: [Federal (on site) and State]

Is that exceptable?

the sister city section is totally gone.
