BP Oil Spill of 2010
Our team has conducted
four surveys, so far, of Gulf Coast residents in the aftermath
of the BP Oil Spill of 2010.
We have done 3 survey waves in coastal Zip codes, which is more targeted to the affected population than our first survey of coastal counties/parishes:
Wave 1: June-July 2010, N=935
Wave 2: October 2010, N=1,103
Wave 3: March 2011, N=1,027
A research report, based on the first wave survey, "Health Impacts of Deepwater Horizon
