FR3.30.05 The Sociodemographic Makeup of North Carolina’s Floodplains

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While research has been conducted on sociodemographic factors, such as race, class and gender, and their relationships to social and physical vulnerability to flooding, very little attention has been paid to the correlation between sociodemographic factors and exposure to flooding. This project examines this relationship by conducting an analysis of the racial, ethnic, class and gender makeup of the 100-year floodplains of North Carolina using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques, US Census block-group level data and parcel data.
