dc.description.abstract This thesis will take a qualitative approach by analyzing one case study to prove the argument that the demographics of a geographical area in the United States affects how efficient the government responds to a natural disaster. The ultimate goal will be to demonstrate that there indeed is a relationship between the demographics of an area and the efficiency of the governmental response by analyzing one case: 1) Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, New Orleans in 2005. The argument focuses on the response of the United States governmental response after a natural disaster. Several past natural disasters can also assist in proving the case, and because of this, other environmental catastrophes will be directed. The results collected by the case study and other minor analyzed cases validate the argument at hand. The U.S. government is prone to provide necessary and quick assistance to areas with favored demographics. Information gathered from experts in politics, and environmental issues seem to have various ideas but result in similar conclusions. Results show that there is a clear relationship between certain environmental catastrophes and allocation of resources the government provides. en
