Employment and wage profile of the Louisiana and Texas counties affected by Hurricane Ike

On Saturday, September 13, 2008, Hurricane Ike swept across much of the east coast of Texas and portions of coastal Louisiana. The Category 2 hurricane made landfall over Galveston around 2 a.m., affecting dozens of counties in the region. On that day, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issued disaster declarations for 29 counties in Texas and 14 parishes in Louisiana due to the storm’s widespread devastation.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has prepared a profile of Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) data for 2007 for the 43 counties in Louisiana and Texas affected by Hurricane Ike. (QCEW data for the fourth quarter of 2008, which will reflect the impact of Hurricane Ike, will be available in July 2009.) See "Employment and wage profile of the Louisiana and Texas counties affected by Hurricane Ike," at www.bls.gov/opub/ils/pdf/opbils69.pdf
