Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey (NJ) on October 29, 2012. Several months after the storm, stakeholders were still assessing the damage and the long-term economic effects on the region. To help with this effort, the Economic and Statistics Administration developed this report which provides baseline information on demographic and economic conditions in these areas. This report was requested by Commerce's Economic Development Administration (EDA) who, with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), is guiding the Federal effort to assist these areas in immediate and long-term recovery efforts. EDA provides these reports to state and local government officials who use them to develop a basis for justification for Federal assistance while EDA uses them to help determine their distribution of grants in the disaster area.
