The downloadable maps on this page were produced in October, 2006 during a research project undertaken by the Center for Social Work Research at The University of Texas at Austin for the City of Austin (see research project page). The data was collected by the City of Austin staff during a needs assessment. An intentional slight distortion in exact locations of evacuees household was introduced to protect the confidentiality of research participants households.
