New household data mashup

The Greater New Orleans Community Data Center has fresh data on the number of households receiving mail in the city, and has mashed it up with pre-Katrina data and Google Maps to present a visual of how the city is coming back.

Data point:
147,157 households received mail in September 2008, in New Orleans, compared to 203,457 in June 2005.

That's about 72.3% of the pre-K households. There's an important distinction between households and people, so keep that in mind as you read.
